LimaEasy on the Go!

A picture is worth a thousand words... – So what about a video?

Tourist Climate Guide for Peru (by Senamhi)

 A great source for information when travelling to Peru

Many times we are getting questions from our visitor on how the weather will be in a specific region of the country during their visit. This is a difficult question to answer as the climate of Peru is incredible diverse, with a large variety of climates and microclimates, including 28 of the 32 world climates.

A very good example for the presence of a multitude of microclimates is the capital Lima itself. There are big differences between the districts directly on the coast and those that are further away to the east (detailed information to this topic can be found on our Weather & Climate info for Lima).

Powdery Cookies filled with Manjar Blanco

Alfajores are surely one of the most popular cookies in Peru. The sweet sensation of two fine, almost powdery cookies nicely filled with just the right amount of creamy Manjar Blanco (Dulce de Leche) melting in the mouth is just absolutely delicious and addicting.
