Lima Peru Cruise Climate

MonthDaily Min TempDaily Max TempTotal Rainfall (mm)

Lima Peru’s climate is one of the driest among all of the cruise ports in South America.

The capital city of this nation of 30 million people on the west coast of the continent averages less than one inch of rain every month of the year, according to historical data from the Peruvian National Weather and Hydrological Service.

It is safe to say that bad weather isn’t much of a risk for the capital city of the country.

Temperatures are mild throughout the year. Peru experiences the Southern Hemisphere summer that goes from fall through spring. Winter runs from spring through fall.

Average high temperatures range from the upper 60s Fahrenheit or about 20 degrees Celsius during the winter to nearly 80 Fahrenheit or 27 Celsius in the summer.

Average low temperatures range from about 58 degrees Fahrenheit or 14 Celsius in the winter to about 67 Fahrenheit or 19 Celsius in the summer.

The three best months for weather are January, February and March.
