The weather in Northern Peru is wide and varied

Northern Peru can be visited at any time of year but unpaved roads inland can get very muddy in the Andean rainy season, January to March. Trujillo has an arid climate, with warm temperatures year round and little rain; Kuelap is in cloud forest so mist can descend at any time but driest between May and September.
