… depends only on the itinerary you have created! The continent is vast and very diverse, which means you can discover landscapes, wildlife or incredible experiences throughout the year.
The climate is generally divided into rainy and dry seasons. If you intend to venture to Galapagos, hike in the Andes, or go birdwatching in the Amazon, the ideal time to plan your trip is between April – June.

Nature! Galapagos is the most awesome wildlife destination. It’s located 1000 km west of mainland Ecuador and is home to a large number of unique animals and plants.
Amazing experiences! Amazonia is perhaps the most incredible place on the planet and a must-see destination. Is the largest river basin in the world, and its forest stretches all across the continent from the Atlantic Ocean to the Andes Mountains. A few days in a lodge are a unique opportunity to see giant macaws or howler monkeys in their natural habitat, waking up the entire jungle as the sun rises.
Night life! From dozens of Michelin-starred restaurants to vintage jazz bars, Lima’s nightlife is super fun. Whether you visit the Peruvian capital as a final destination or on the way to Cuzco, Machu Picchu, or Rainbow Mountain, book at least 3 days in “Ciudad de los Reyes”.
Gastronomy! Due to culinary diversity, South American gastronomy is a combination of unique flavors and textures. In the small colonial villages dotted along the Sacred Valley of the Incas, you will get lost on narrow streets and inns where you could try guinea pig, alpaca steak or “superfoods” that can’t be found anywhere else.
