When traveling to Peru, it is essential to understand that, regardless of its geographical position which is mostly located in a warm zone, Peru has very variable climatic characteristics. This is due to the existence of the Pacific Ocean and the convergence of 2 maritime currents, whose waters reduce the thermal extremes typical of the Andean mountain range, which in turn forms protective barriers against the cold northern winds. In addition, once you travel to Peru, you will understand that the Peruvian Amazon rainforest is at the mercy of the humid and medium atmospheric currents of the Pacific Ocean.
