When and where is best to get sunny weather in Ecuador and Peru?

Jump to last reply

We will be in South America from May to November and, whilst we are not especially beach people, we would like to spend a week or two under warm, sunny blue skies

I am getting conflicting/unclear information from the guidebooks as to the weather on the coast of Ecuador and Peru around this time. I appreciate that the temperature will be pretty much constant, but is there a better month for blue skies as opposed to dull overcast weather?

I am trying to put together an outline itinerary and am trying to determine when would be the best time to head for the coast. I can recall being in Lima in August and it being overcast and dull the whole time whereas further south in Valparaiso in Sept, we had great sunny weather.

Any thoughts, opinions or experiences would be much appreciated?
