The diverse geography that exists in Peru means that weather is very much dependent on the region. There are three natural regions in Peru: the coast, the highlands and the Amazon jungle, each experiencing different weather and temperatures.
While it rarely rains on Peru’s coast, this region experiences two seasons, summer and winter. The summer season runs from December to March with temperatures averaging around 27˚C (80˚F) while winter on the coast is from May to November. This time of year can be damp and sometimes chilly with temperatures dropping to 12˚C (53˚F). The far north enjoys temperatures reaching 35˚C (95˚F) in the summer and has sunshine all year.
The highlands also have two seasons: a dry season and a wet season. May to October is considered the dry season with sunny days and cold nights while December to March is the rainy season. Temperatures can fluctuate a great deal throughout the day during the rainy season.
Finally, Peru’s jungle region naturally experiences a tropical climate that is hot and humid. Summer in the Amazon is from April to October with temperatures above 30˚C (86˚F) and a great deal of sunshine. November to March is the rainy season with frequent but short showers and humidity.
