Peru Weather Varies Greatly by Region

Peru’s climate is quite distinct between its geographical regions and elevations. For example, if you are heading to Machu Picchu, you’ll want to reference the climate chart above for Cusco, Peru, but also one for the significantly lower-elevation gateway town of Aguas Calientes. If you are heading to the Amazon River, it will be another story altogether thanks to much lower elevation and higher humidity. Keep reading for more about Peru’s diverse weather by region of travel.
