Peru: Winter Sun

Mountainous terrain, vast coastal deserts and steamy, tropical rainforests

If you desire a quiet and relaxing winter sun holiday you will find that Peru can provide both relaxation and warmth. Peru is located near the equator and in the southern hemisphere. This means that Britain's coldest and wettest months are the best for visiting Peru. At least, that is the best time for visiting Peru's coastal plane, because the sunniest time of the year there is between late December and March. Realistically, this is the only part of Peru where you could take a winter sun holiday. The climate in the Amazon basin is wet all of the year round and the dry season in the Andes is between June and August. Peru has some opportunities for a winter sun holiday.
