Climate in Peru

Peru is divided in 3 areas: the coast, the mountains and the amazon. The diversity makes it a perfect destination for an amazing trip.

On the coast the climate is generally temperate, except the north coast, it has a semitropical climate because it is not under the influence of the Niño Current, which is a warm current that comes from the north.
