If you want to visit the Amazon Rainforest, the dry season is a good time to go because it has less rainfall and humidity. However, if you want to explore the Andean highlands or attend festivals such as Inti Raymi (the Festival of the Sun) in Cusco, the dry season may be the best time to visit.

It's worth noting that the shoulder seasons of April and November can be ideal for visiting Peru. During these months, you may see fewer tourists, lower prices, and still have relatively good weather in many parts of the country.
