Connect with nature in each of Peru’s three major regions – the coast, mountains, and jungle. South of Lima, the Paracas National Reserve protects a photogenic colony of sea lions and more than 100 species of seabirds.
You will never forget seeing the sea lions in their natural environment, just a few miles away from the coast. In the mountains, the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary preserves not just the historic Inca ruins, but also rare flora and fauna.
In the southeastern jungle, the Manu Biosphere and the Tambopata National Reserve are a hot spot of ecotourism where you will be able to see endangered species in Peru.
Go to see nature, stay to experience the magic of the Andes, the Cloud forest and rainforest.
Peru Travel information
When to travel to Peru? Considering that Peru is categorized as one of the 17 megadiverse countries on earth, you have a variety of climates and seasons to consider. That being said, you can visit Peru year-round depending on where you would like to visit. However, if you are looking to explore the Amazonian rainforest or traverse through the Andes Mountains, many travelers choose to avoid the rainy season which runs from November to March with its peak between January and February. Visiting from April through October lands you in the generally dry winter season, which is an excellent time to visit Machu Picchu, experience a world-class trek, traverse the exotic Amazon Rain forest not to mention the other amazing destinations Peru has to offer.
