  Great Weather in Late April, Machu Picchu, Peru
by jumpingnorman

Fondest memory: Hopefully, it won't be raining when you see the ruins of Machu Picchu -- so you better plan for it!

I visited late April and the weather was purrrrfect! The recommended time by most experts is mid-April to May, or September to october, to avoid the rainy season and the tourist crowds.

June to August are the most popular times to visit, however they are also cold times. June is popular due to that famous and dramatic Inca cultural parade and show in Cusco.

But, whatever the season, I have one word for you --- goodboots.
