The time is not really a problem in Machu Picchu the minimum temperatures vary between 8 ºC and the maximum ones around 20 ºC.

However, there are big differences between coming in the rainy season or during the dry season; If you definitely do not want to get wet, you can choose to come between the months of April and October, dry season, but coming in the rainy season also has its advantages, lower prices, fewer people and Machu Picchu in its more intense green. The intermediate months (April and September), offer the best of both seasons.
