When we visited

The best time to visit Peru depends on what you want to do and see. If you're interested in trekking, the dry season from May to September is ideal. For those interested in seeing wildlife in the Amazon, the rainy season from December to March is best. However, the coastal areas of Peru are generally sunny year-round, making it a great destination anytime.
