While Peru may not often be found on lists of top honeymoon destinations, it offers everything from sun-soaked beaches with warm water and waves for surfing to lush Amazon jungle teeming with wildlife like sloths, monkeys, anteaters, jaguars, and colorful birds. Of course, it’s home to a significant swathe of the dramatic Andes Mountains, home to the world-famous ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. This is a treasure trove for all types of travelers, including honeymooners looking for something different than the usual cocktail-in-hand by-the-pool kind of trip. Embark on epic treks, perhaps even the bucket-list hike to Machu Picchu or the trails through Colca Canyon, with waterfalls, hot springs, and llama herds led by farmers dressed in traditional attire. Boat excursions through the Amazon River and paddling the world’s largest high-altitude body of water, Lake Titicaca are possible too.

 

If you want to spend some time in the city, Lima boasts a booming gastronomic scene, magnificent architecture, and lively nightlife. There are some spectacular luxury resorts in Peru whether you want to be close to Machu Picchu, the Amazon, or just about anywhere else. Think beautiful pools, pampering spas, and fine dining restaurants for sampling the authentic local cuisine.

My love for South America started when I was living in Lima, Peru, and family and friends came to visit. That year I went to Machu Picchu 5 times! I do not have one drop of Latin blood in me, which is painfully obvious if you see me dance, and yet without realizing it for the past 15 years South America has been my home.

When to Visit Peru

Peru is a diverse country with multiple climate zones which means the best time to visit for your honeymoon depends on the destination. The Amazon is best visited between May and September, the dry season with warm, sunny days. If you plan to visit Machu Picchu or hike the Andes, that same period is optimal for avoiding the rainy season but there will be fewer crowds in April and October, and there’s a good chance for decent weather. Avoid January and February due to the heavy rainfall. Around Lima and the Pacific coast, the warmest, sunniest time of year is between November and March.
