The archaeological complex of Machu Picchu is located in the department of Cusco, in the province of Urubamba and the district of Machu Picchu. It stands on the eastern slopes of the Vilcanota mountain range, a chain of mountains condensed by the Apurimac and Urubamba rivers (excellent whitewater rafting!).
Machu Picchu is located in a subtropical area, so the weather is generally hot and humid throughout the day and cool at night. Temperatures range from 11 to 27 degrees Celsius (52 to 81 Fahrenheit). This area is typically rainy, especially between November and March.
Best times to visit:
The ideal time to visit Machu Picchu is from May to September. During this time, it rains very little in the Andean region. Although it is winter, temperatures in Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu do not fluctuate much during the day.
The second best time to visit would be in March, April, October or November. During these months, there may be some rain, but you may also be lucky with uninterrupted sunny days. The months to avoid are December, January and especially February and early March due to high levels of rainfall.
How do I get up there?
There are three ways to get to Machu Picchu:
Your first option is to travel by train. It takes 4 hours from the Cusco Poroy Station and 2 hours from the Ollantaytambo Station.
Your second option is Adventure Trekking through the Inca Trail, Salkantay Trek and other treks and the third and cheapest is to reach Machu Picchu by car.
In recent years, Peru has become one of the most visited countries in South America. Peruvians are immensely proud of their culture and heritage, and they welcome all visitors who wish to admire the impressive features of their country.
If you want to explore a country with a variety of characteristics, then Peru may be the place to visit. But before you do, you should search for the ideal Amazon and Machu Picchu tours to get the most out of your vacation.
Peru is a country that has a lot to offer, but let’s talk about the 3 must-see places
Cusco is a city in the Peruvian Andes and was once the capital of the Inca Empire. This city is now home to a wide variety of historical and archaeological remains and Spanish colonial architecture. After exploring the main sights, you can explore the thriving culinary scene of Cusco.
Most travellers use this city as a starting point for Machu Picchu, which is the biggest tourist attraction in Peru. Backpackers from all over the world flock to Cusco throughout the year, making it a welcome haven.
While in Peru, one cannot simply miss this place. Widely considered one of the greatest archaeological wonders in the world, this magnificent ancient Inca settlement is definitely a highlight of any Machu Picchu and Amazon tour. The well-preserved stonework, spectacular backdrop, and mysterious character of the site attract visitors each year.
When you first see the terraced ruins, you will be amazed and it will be the moment you will never forget. If you love adventure, then you can hike the Inca Trail into the Andes, crossing lush tropical jungles and high mountain passes before receiving the ultimate reward for your efforts.
Compared to the lower part of the Amazon, the headwaters of the Peruvian Amazon contain a higher concentration of wildlife. If you are a lover of wildlife, the Peruvian Amazon is an excellent option, since you will be able to observe a great variety of species. Peru also has a large part of the remote jungle that is still relatively untouched by human settlement. These remote forests are a great place to spot some of the jungle’s most unique wildlife.
If you have decided to visit Peru, then plan your trip in the winter season (May-September). Winter is the driest season and the best time of the year to travel, especially if you plan to hike to Machu Picchu or visit Cusco. However, this is considered to be the high season.
If you want to avoid the crowds, try to visit in the summer season (December-March). Although there is a good chance of rain during these months, you can try to line up for a forecast clear day.
Planning a vacation to Peru
With the diverse variety of options, choosing a specific destination for your vacation can be a challenge.
From the diverse sights to the rich history of Lima, the magical coastlines of the Ballestas Islands and the ever-mysterious Nazca Lines, Peru offers it all.
This obviously makes it difficult to fit all the things you want into your time here.
Here are some general tips that you can use to turn your vacation into an unforgettable experience:
How much time do you have?
Although before embarking on any type of vacation it is necessary to have a clear idea of the number of days you have available. But it is especially important for Peru.
Peru is about the same size as Alaska and it can be nearly impossible to visit the entire country in one visit. Most tourists come to visit Machu Picchu and some come solely for the Inca Trail hiking experience.
If you have a lot of time and want a highly personalized tour, check out our bespoke packages.
Try to travel out of season
The busiest time to visit Peru is between June and August. Try to plan it around this period. Also, the rainy season in Machu Picchu is between the end of November and February. If you travel during these months, don’t forget to bring your raincoat.
Lima and most of the coast are sunny but cool during these months, making it the perfect time to travel.
Brush up on your Spanish
Unlike other Latin American countries, most people in Peru are not fluent in English.
Although most of the people in our Peru travel network speak English, you will feel a little more comfortable brushing up on your Spanish. You might as well end up making some local friends.
Check out the local restaurants
Peruvian cuisine is gaining popularity all over the world due to its style. Be sure to try the Larcomar restaurants in Lima or if you are looking for something on the pier, visit Rosa Náutica. Remember; You need to be a bit adventurous to try the local Peruvian cuisine.
There is a lot to do in Peru, which is why thousands of tourists come to visit it every year. Ready to plan your tour package in Peru? Contact us right away to get started.
