June and October are the perfect months for a visit to Cusco, when the sun comes out early and shines all day.
The rainy season begins in November and lasts until March. During this time of year, we suggest always carrying a raincoat or umbrella with you.
When traveling to Cusco (Machu Picchu) we recommend taking the necessary precautions against mosquito bites and overexposure to the sun. Make sure to bring sunblock, insect repellent, hats, and sunglasses.
In the region of Puno, the climate in most places is cold and semiarid, with rainfall in the summer and a high relative humidity.
The climate in the city of Puno itself is cold and dry. Since the city is located on the shores of Titicaca, however, the temperature rarely drops below 32 ºF (0 ºC)”. In zones located further from the lake and higher up, the cold is quite intense, especially at night.
