CLIMATE OF PERU

CUSCO

Peru’s climate has two seasons
–wet and dry- though the weather varies greatly depending on the geographical
region.The coastal area is desert and as
you would expect arid. During summer ( January to March)  the sky is often clear
and this is the time peruvians so to the beach.For the rest of the year a grey
coastal mist called the garúa and the sun is rarely seen.As you move inland you can soon
rise above the coastal mist .Even Nazca which is only 60km and at 600m is high
enough to avoid the garúa and is hot and sunny for most days of the year.

When you enter the Andes region
you begin to start experiencing the wet and dry seasons. If you want to go
trekking around the Cusco area the dry season is from may to September, however
since Cusco is at 3326m above sea level nights can be cold and can even go below
freezing at times. The days however are filled with glorious mountain sunshine.
Because of this the dry season is referred to as summer and the warmer but
wetter season is known as winter.This can lead to confusion since
when it is summer on the coast it is winter in the highlands and vice versa.
Peruvians themselves cannot agree!
The important factor is whether
it is going to rain or not. The wet season is from October to May however it
does not generally get really wet until January and then continues to stay wet
until April. ( add in weather charts)
