End of August-two questions

Dear TA Friends,

1. How hot is it at the end of Aug? I know winter in SA-but we live in Florida and end of Aug and Sept is high 90s with 100% humidity-how close?

2. Are the parrots, etc. seasonal with the clay licks? I guess I am asking will they be there to see-worth at end of Aug at 5:30 a.m.? I have read mixed reviews.

Its hot and humid year round. Its winter season on the coast but it will still be warm in the jungle. Could have a cold front though, but will not be able to tell so far in advance. You will see parrots for sure.

I saw parrots at the clay lick in mid-August. Certainly worth it. The weather in the jungle was very hot and humid, but hey, it's the jungle.

Lima and Cusco were also quite nice - cool in the evenings, but only a light jacket needed during the day.
