Down on the coast in Lima in July it can often be misty and cloud covered and around 20°c/ 68°f or so, and is hotter with less cloud cover in February.

It tends to be around 21°c / 70°f and of course will get a lot chillier in the nights. Most people get to Machu Piccu via the fascinating city of Cusco which sits at over 3000 metres above sea level, so while you are acclimatising for your Machu Piccu trek enjoy the ancient delights of this Incan Capital for a few days and the plenty of wonders that surround the city.

There is more rainfall from June to November but it doesn’t have a dramatic effect and in July it means the impressive waterfalls will be flowing instead of a dry riverbed, the most well known being Angel falls. The coastline is on the Caribbean and the beaches are typical powder white sands, venture a little further and you’ll encounter coffee plantations, mountains, wildlife like you’ve only ever seen on Nat-Geo, buzzing cities and spectacular rain forest.
