Seasons, Festivals & Events

Sangarara Festival 18 Nov

Peru celebrates so many different cultures and holidays that it’s hard to choose which ones to attend. There are about 3000 cultural celebrations throughout the country each year. Many are a syncretism of traditional Andean cultures and Catholic holidays introduced by the Spanish.

Peru has a national day for just about everything. April 29th is International Dance Day, celebrated with Andean dances. The 28th of June is National Ceviche Day. The 4th Sunday in July is National Pisco Day. The 2nd Friday in October is National Guinea Pig day. October 31st is National Criollo Song day, celebrating the mix of Spanish and Andean musical traditions.

The best time for Cusco Region Treks is during the dry season, when you can reliable go hiking and sightseeing on sunny days. However, the best time to see flora and fauna is in the early dry season, while the hills are still covered with wildflowers.
