Peru is a country of awesome geography; its attractions could fill the Guinness Book of Records. World’s highest navigable lake? Titicaca. Deepest canyon? Colca Canyon. Oldest city in the Americas? Caral. Longest waves? At Chicama. Largest river? Peru is the source of the Amazon.
Lima is the capital, home to about a third of Peruvians. It was founded by Francisco Pizarro, the Spanish conquistador in 1535, and called La Ciudad de los Reyes (the City of Kings). It was the capital and most important city of the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru and several of its beautiful buildings hail from that time.
Peruvian cuisine is one of the world’s great cuisines. It’s a blend of pre-Inca, Inca, Spanish, African, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French and British. Cebiche (marinated raw fish) is the national dish, but you’ll also find Cuy (Guinea Pig) on the menu in the Andes, all washed down with Inca Kola, the lemon verbena-flavored soft drink that outsells all others in Peru.
The coastal region has two seasons – summer (December to March) and winter (May to October). Summer temperatures can hit 27 degrees, while winter temperatures are in the low teens.The highlands (Andes) also have a two-season climate. The dry season runs from May to October and the rainy season runs from December to March. Temperatures range between 20 degrees down to 2 degrees.In the jungle, there is a tropical and humid climate. The summer (or dry season) lasts from April to October. Temperatures can exceed 30 degrees. The rainy season is November to March.
The best time to take cheap flights to Peru really depends on where you intend to go. The coast, including Lima, is best seen during the summer months (December to March). For Cuzco, the Sacred Valley, the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu, visit between May and September. This is the dry season. For jungle treks, visit between May and September. May to October is the best time to visit the Andes.
The Inti Raymi festival takes place in June; it’s Peru’s second-largest festival.
This too depends on what you are planning to do once you land in Peru. November to May is the rainy season. There may be flooding and landslides during these months, which will disrupt transport services.
