Inside-Peru Newsletter, Issue #010 - Tremblers to Treats Peru
September 14, 2010

Hello



A couple of earthquakes (temblores, small quakes) have shook us a little but we've been through much bigger ones in Hawaii and Ecuador so were relatively unconcerned. Although until the movement stops you are still wondering, "Will it get worse?"

What about you? Are you in Peru? Are you thinking about coming to Peru for vacation, travel, work, or to live, or just to experience it earthquakes (temblores) and all? Or are you merely looking for information on this fascinating country?

In any case, the questions and answers that Lin and I find as well as those that other visitors ask (and answer) can be of great help!

Below, you'll find the latest questions, comments, news, and information on Peru that has recently been added to our site.

Be sure and share this with your friends!
David and Lin Schneider

Apr 11, Machu Picchu Weather
Sunday, April 11, 2010 11:11 AM

Machu Picchu weather ranges from 12 degrees C (54 degrees F) to 24 degrees C (74 degrees F). It is fairly warm during the day and cooler at night and fairly humid. There are two seasons, the rainy season and the dry season. Machu Picchu weather during the rainy season (November to March) is not the best for traveling. In fact I wouldn't recommend traveling to Machu Picchu during the heaviest rainfall months of December through February.
