What to Do
Continuing with the theme from January; the first couple of months of the year are the wettest months in Peru.
It’s a good idea to get off the beaten path to avoid routes that are protected by maintenance during these months and that are also susceptible to landslides & adverse conditions.
Heading to the North is a good time to explore regions that are rich in culture but lesser known, such as Kuelap, Chachapoyas, Tumbes, Piura etc.
Also heading south to Lake Titicaca for some island hopping and the festivals that take place in Puno is a great idea!
The fiesta Virgen de la Candelaria, in Puno, is one of the largest and most famous festivals in Peru, but it is also one of the largest in South America. Cheerful processions march to the sound of music across the city during this festival.
Different carnivals are also celebrated across Peru during this month with parties, dances, and water balloons.
