Getting There
Most flights will land either into Lima or Cusco, with Lima being the preferred and easiest airport to fly in and out of.

Getting Around

Overland is usually a good way to travel throughout Peru, especially further down South. A flight between Lima and Cusco is common to speed up the travel time.

Accommodation Costs
Accommodation varies widely throughout Peru. If attending one of the trails to Machu Picchu, expect tent accommodation, with boutique hotels common throughout the rest of Peru, and more luxurious hotels in cities like Lima and Cusco.

How Long to Stay
We really recommend the shortest period of time to spend in Peru is a week with 2 weeks being the preferred to be able to see a lot more. It’s really well combined with other South American countries, Ecuador and the Galapagos or Bolivia are really lovely additions to an epic trip to Peru.

Weather and When To Go
Generally speaking Peru is great for the majority of the year with the best time being the dry season between May and September. January to March is very wet, with even the Inca Trail being shut in February for yearly maintenance. October marks the end of the dry season but still some beautiful weather and with a little rain brings more vibrancy to the landscape.

Lima and Cusco both stay relatively dry all year round due to the altitude the cities sit at. The more rural spots like the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Iquitos and the Colca Canyon are more likely to see rainfall.

We really suggest travelling during the best season from May to September, great for families travelling as the Summer Holidays would be ideal, and even the Easter Holidays and October Half term would be good too. For those wanting to miss the crowds or wanting to travel without kids then May/June and September/October would be ideal times to travel.
