Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
The weather in Peru is pleasant all year round. There are no intermediate seasons; summer and winter cover different periods of the year depending on the region. Temperatures in Cusco are pleasant all year round. The average temperatures range from 20°C in January to 22°C in October. It rains the most from December to February. The most pleasant time to stay in Cusco is from May to September.
The currency of Peru is the nuevo sol (plural soles) symbolized S/. Even if life has increased considerably recently, a trip to Peru is still affordable (but much cheaper than in Bolivia). If you opt for unpretentious establishments, you get almost nothing, the same for food. Transportation even by plane is inexpensive. The bulk of the expenses will therefore be devoted to activities. A stay in Cusco will therefore be very affordable.
For a trip to Peru and a stay in Cusco no visa is required. A 90-day tourist visa will be automatically issued to you upon your arrival on the territory. The maximum duration is 183 days per year with a tourist visa. Passport controls are possible when crossing a provincial border. You must also present your passport when booking national or international flights and even when purchasing bus tickets from certain companies. The tourist sheet (or tarjeta migratoria) is now electronic. Your data is automatically entered into the Migraciones system. If you are in border regions and your visa is about to expire, it is advisable to travel abroad to re-enter as a tourist and thus extend your time there. If your stay exceeds the authorized duration, a fine of US$1 per day of delay will be requested when you leave the country.
To enter Peru and stay in Cusco, no specific vaccine is required if you are coming from Europe, North America, Oceania or Asia. However, if you have recently travelled to some countries in Africa or South America, you will be asked for a yellow fever vaccine certificate. In addition, it is recommended to be up to date with the usual vaccines (hepatitis A, hepatitis B, rabies, tetanus-polio, typhoid). It is strongly recommended to protect yourself against yellow fever and take malaria treatment if you intend to travel to the Amazon area. Similarly, remember to remain vigilant against the risks associated with water, as tap water is not drinkable in Peru.
