Peru Flights GuideMost think of the Machu Picchu and the Amazon Rainforest when heading to Peru but the South American country has so much more to offer. The Colca Canyon is twice as deep as the Grand canyon and the floating islands of Lake Titicaca is a popular attraction. The Rainbow Mountains and salt pools in the Sacred Valley are not to be missed.
Peru is a surprisingly large country with capital city in Lima. If you want to see a lot of places in a short amount of time it is best to travel by plane to see major destinations like Cusco, Arequipa, and Iquitos. Machu Picchu is easily accessible by train on PeruRail for a scenic journey.
Peru's climate is incredibly diverse including 30 of 32 world climates. The coast brings a subtropical climate with minimal rainfall while the Andes has a cooler rainy summer and dry winters. High season occurs from May to October and during the winter holiday season. You can expect higher travel costs and crowds during these times in the year. This time also brings dry weather which is perfect for exploring the country's trails and parks.
