Ask Sadie: What is the weather like in June?


_Hello Sadie!_

_I’m excited to inform you that I will be traveling to Peru from Indiana in June for the very first time with a couple of friends. We have been doing a lot of research on what to do when we are in Peru. The only thing that we have had a hard time searching for and getting a straight answer for is about the weather in Peru during June._

_We would like to know what the weather would be like in Lima and Cusco so we can make sure to have the correct attire. As you can tell we like to be prepared for anything and everything._

_Thank you in advance,_


Dear Sarah,

I’m glad to hear that you are excited for your first trip to Peru. The weather in Peru is always the opposite of the U.S. During mid June the weather in the states is nice and warm because it is the start of summer. In Peru when it is winter the weather is fierce. Peru’s winter is not as cold as Indiana per se, but it is the humidity that makes me you cold and gets you sick.

As for clothing, it really depends on which area you will be staying in when in Lima. Miraflores, San Isidro and La Punta (Callao) have the coldest weather that ranges from 62- 42 degree because they are located right near the ocean. Cusco weather is a tad bit cooler and gets to around 32 degrees or so, but for the most part the clothing options are the same.

During winter there is also a lot of fog, so I would suggest that you and your friends bring sweaters, long pants, scarves, and a jackets to protect yourself from the humidity. It is usually cooler in the morning and in the evening. During the day you may like to wear long or short sleeves, but always carry your jacket or sweater. I would suggest adding a raincoat for when you go to Cusco, just in case you get some showers.

I hope this helps and good luck!
