Do you want to travel to both Peru and the Galapagos Islands? Personally, we think that a trip to Peru is best combined with Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. One could begin their journey by exploring Peru’s cultural hotspots then take a flight to Ecuador to immerse in the wonders of the Amazon and finally end the trip at the wildlife paradise in the Galapagos Island. Beginning at the Galapagos Islands and ending in Peru is also possible and a good pace for this itinerary would be around 3 weeks. The weather plays a vital role in your perfect combined trip to Peru and the Galapagos Islands. Below is a weather and climate table on Machu Picchu to help you to select the best time to travel!

When is the best time to travel in Peru?
Peru is an all-year destination. Each season has its perks and negative side. There are two seasons in Peru, a dry winter climate from May to October and summertime from November to April. During the winter period, the Andes are warmer and dryer during the day, making it ideal for trekking tours. Nights can get very cold, especially in the coastal area. During the warmer summertime, frequent rainfalls can be expected, and the coastal region enjoys a more comfortable weather. However, due to higher levels of precipitation, trekking in the Andes during summer is not recommended.
