Most of travelers who come to Peru for the first time focus their goal on Machu Picchu (Cusco), which is located in the mountains (Andes), and chose itineraries that include this attraction.

Then the best season to visit Peru is between the months of April to November during the dry season (absence or little rain) in the mountains.

During those months, this is also the high tourist season, therefore,  everything is more expensive and at the same time scarced. It is recommended to book tours and services in advance for these dates.
