winter in cusco, Peru?

I would like to visit Cusco and Lima in July which is Peru's winter. Please tell me if the temperature will bill be too cold, windy or rainy. Also, if it would be a better idea to go in December, would it be too hot to climb Machu Pichu?

    The temperature is very pleasant. Shorts during the day, though it does get quite cool at night. It never rains in Lima and late August/ early September mark the start of the rainy season so you will be fine in Cuzco. I climbed Machu Picchu in August and it was too hot then!! I couldn't imagine doing it in December.

    Hi,

    Its really a great Idea to go to Cuzco and Lima. Temperature in Cuzco in July is 32(L) - 67 (H) and in Lima is 61(L) - 67(H) while in Dec the temperature in Cuzco is 43(L) -70(H) and in Lima is 67(L) -76(H). Although both the places are good at the point of adventure. and climate is also good. Machu Picchu is situated on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba Valley in Peru and is 80Km from the Cuzco.

    Layers! Short sleeves and a fleece and a lightweight rain jacket. That way you can layer up when you get cold. For pants, jeans or khakis will work just fine. Have a great time. We just went there and had a great time, lots of great sites in the area and MP was awesome. Try to stay overnight in Aguas Calientes the night before, and get up there when they open at 6am-far less crowded and you'll be done exploring shortly after the Cuzco crowd gets there at noontime.

    I understood the daytime temperatures are similar only varying across the year by about 2-3 degreesC. However the Winter night temperatures are much lower (down to freezing) in July.
