Peru is Great! It's my favorite area in South America. There are many different things you can see there. Cusco, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, the Amazon, etc..

Also, it was this time of the year (June) that I visited Peru and the weather was delightful. I don't like extreme heat so to me it was great in June. Never rained the whole time I was there. Just a little cold at night down at Lake Titicaca because of the altitude.

Stephy, if you are thinking about going to Peru right now, you may be right on time for the Inti Raymi celebrations in Cuzco. They last the whole month of June but the downside is that it may be difficult to find a place to stay. Nevertheless, it is the best time to go and visit. You get to experience the Peruvian culture in a whole different way, watching traditional dances, their customs, their colorful clothing, it is really something.

I cant imagine going to South America and not visiting Machu Picchu. If anything, that will make it all worth the trip. You can try to make your way down from the Amazon (Iquitos) to Cuzco, you may actually catch the tail end of the Inti Raymi celebrations there. After Cuzco, you can go to Lake Titicaca and when you get there you can find out what the current situation is in Bolivia. By then, things may be better and the roads may be reopen.
