June marks the first month of high season for treks to Machu Picchu so you’ll need to book well in advance to secure a permit. It’s high season for a reason though; rainfall is at a minimum and the mountain peaks look perfect set against a clear blue sky.

There are also a multitude of festivals throughout the month in Cusco making it a great opportunity to live like a local for a day!

High season is yet to begin in Bolivia, but the weather is dry and the sun is starting to break through the clouds. It’s a great time of year to visit Copacabana and the city of La Paz, but for guaranteed sun the salt flats are for you.

June 24th is the San Juan festival with bonfires lit across the country. Head to Santa Cruz for the largest celebrations and a real feel of Bolivian culture.

Borneo experiences rain throughout the year, so you’ll always need to pack your waterproofs. But as anywhere in the tropics, heavy downpours only last a few hours giving way to sunny spells soon after.

If you’re looking to hit the beach though then June is a great month with a better chance of sunshine and dry days.  The great weather brings more tourists so it’s a good idea to book your trip early.

Costa Rica

June marks the beginning of the rainy season (or green season as the tourist board have dubbed it). Though not the best time of year for dry days the rainforest is even more vibrant and lush and you’ll find far fewer tourists, so it’s a great month for missing the crowds. Monteverde’s cloud forest is particularly steamy.

Although Patagonia is pretty much off limits in June, central and northern Chile are great to visit.

Head up to San Pedro de Atacama for some of the best stargazing in the world on a cloudless desert night. In the town June 29th marks the Fiesta de San Pedro y San Pablo during which you can expect plenty of rowdy local revelers.
