The Regions of Peru

 

Peru straddles three geographical regions:
 The Coastal Plain is bathed by the Pacific and contains deserts, beautiful beaches and fertile     valleys.
 The Highlands or Sierra is a mountain area dominated by the Andes Mountain Range where the     Huascaran peak reaches 6768 meters above sea level (22,334 ft.).
 The Amazon Jungle is covered with tropical forest and embraces extensive nature reserves.

   
Climate

The Coast
It hardly ever rains on the Coast although there are two clearly marked seasons. In summer, from December to March, temperatures reach 27º C (80º F). In winter, from May to October, temperatures may fall to a mild 12º C (53º F) amidst high humidity. Winter is typically a season of mists and light rains or drizzle. In the northern tip of the coastal strip, the sun shines 300 days a year and temperatures climb to 35º C (96º F).

The Highlands
Dry and mild, the weather in the Highlands shows two clearly distinct seasons. In summer, from May to October, days are sunny, nights cold and rain scarce, creating the perfect weather for a visit. Rainfall is abundant from December to March. Within the same day, temperatures in the Highlands may fluctuate from 2º C (35º F) to 20º C (68º F).

The Amazon Forest
DIn the jungle it is always humid and tropical, with two clearly different seasons. In the dry season from May to October, sunny days heat up to 30º C (86º F). In the rainy season, rain showers are frequent and rivers swell.
