Dry Season in Cusco

Posted on : 12 August 2021


Dry Season in Cusco

Dry Season in Cusco

The weather at this time of the year is quite dry and colder than other months. However, the days are a bit cloudy but mostly sunny; with small chances of raining during the day. Temperatures tend to go down at night, getting to 2ºC in the city and maybe a bit coldest in small towns.

June, July, and August are the driest months but also the crowded ones in Cusco, due to holidays and summer vacations in the northern hemisphere and around Peru. Temperatures go between 12º and 18ºC in the morning and 5º to 0ºC at night. Bring warm clothing and be sure that we are happy to receive and help you find all the comfort to enjoy when you decide to travel. June holds the Cusco’s traditional festivities and the main one is on the 24th of June, where the Inti Raymi or Sun Festival is celebrated.

If you choose to travel to Cusco during this time, know that many people will do the same as you. This is the most popular time to visit Cusco; festivities, parades, and many other cultural exhibitions will be waiting for you everywhere in the region. This makes that some services like train schedules to Machu Picchu, hotel availability and guided tours in Cusco city must be booked in advance, also be aware of a possible increase in its regular cost. If you are used to cold weather, this may be the best time to visit Cusco City; just get ready to line up for entrances or take photos with many new friends you will find around your trip.

Although, if you are too much into trekking this is the best time to take the traditional Inca Trail or some of the other trek options to Machu Picchu like Salkantay or Lares Trek. So, just take the time to decide which your best option is; anyways every time is perfect to visit Machu Picchu.
