With about 3,000 festivals annually in Peru, any time of the year is a good time to visit. For sun worshipers, try Festival of the Sun (or Inti Raymi). The days are a cozy 67 degrees, but bundle up at night for 36 degree temperatures. The host town of Cuzco has an impressive collection of luxury hotels from colonial style to boutique luxury hotels that will only be found in this part of the world. If you enjoy colorfully clad dancers representing condors and snakes worshiping the Emperor Sapa Inca (actually, an actor), then be sure to experience the other 2,999 annual festivals.
