Need to know

Generally speaking the hotel prices depend on the tourist season. The peak season is between July and August for the highlands, while May and June are the recommended months to visit Machu Picchu. During these months, the prices are at their highest, although they can be reasonably lower than those in Europe, for example.

January to April is the wettest period although travelers do visit Peru and the highlands during this time. The prices are slightly lower though.

If you are heading to the beach, the high season is between December and March, when the prices are at their highest, although Peru is not exactly known as a beach destination.

If you book a hotel in one of the cities, such as Cusco or Lima, the prices won’t wary that much according to the season, but there will be discounts available for the less crowded periods.

If you plan to visit Peru during the high season make sure to book your room well in advance since it gets very hard to find any openings.
