When to go
The most popular time to visit is between June and August, when the weather is at its most reliable. If you want to avoid the worst of the crowds, consider May or September.
PlanesAlejandro Velasco Astete International is the closest airport. In spite of its name, most flights that land there are domestic – the best route for international arrivals is via Lima, which can be reached direct on a BA flight from London Gatwick, or via Madrid if you’re beginning your journey on the continent.
AutomobilesPeru doesn’t have the best reputation when it comes to tourist-friendly driving: attitudes can be gung ho, and those with the largest vehicles tend to act as if they have a greater right to the road. Unless you’re confident in your swerving skills, you’re better off taking taxis or having someone local do your driving for you.
