In general, the climate on the coast is subtropical with very little rainfall. The Andes mountains observe a cool-to-cold climate with rainy summers and very dry winters.

Peru has a climate that varies from tropical in the Amazon jungle  region in the east of the country to temperate on the coastline, with  areas of arid desert in the west. The land is volatile, subject to earthquakes, volcanic activity, and the devastating effects of El NiƱo.

Food-

Peruvian main courses are enormously varied in flavors and colors reflecting the native heritage, the three main geographical areas and of course the merging of traditional with foreign cooking styles from immigrants. As each region in Peru is distinct in its flora and fauna, each local cuisine adapts to the natural resources available and present foreign influences.
