When to go
Lima’s weather is very temperate due to its proximity to the equator. Winters in Lima can be quite grey as a result of the humid climate. Through most of winter Lima is covered in a layer of clouds and a light drizzle, or ‘garúa’; average temperatures are around 15°C. The summer months of December to March tend to be sunny and temperatures average around 22°C, though they can go as high as 27°C. The humidity factor makes these seemingly mild temperatures feel more extreme.
