Located in Western South America, bordering Colombia and Ecuador in the north, Brazil and Bolivia in the east, and Chile in the south, Peru is a country bursting with life – quite literally! The third largest country in South America hosts a vast variety of landscapes; from mountains, to beaches, deserts and rainforests. Peru is home to an incredibly dense ecosystem of rare and wonderful plants and animals – more so than most other countries. Whilst its capital, Lima, and its Inca capital, Cusco, are bursting with life for much different reasons.
There are 2 main seasons in Peru – summer/low season from November to March, which is the country’s rainy season, especially in the highlands, and winter/high season from June through to September, its dry season and best time for festivals and highland sports.
