comment Travelling to Peru, Ecuador, Galapagos with kids
The high season is in between June and August because it is cooler and dryer in the Andes and North American and Europeans have their summer vacation. So the rest of the year should be low season. Places will be less crowded.

Do you plan to fly between places? Some of the required bus or car journeys are very long, maybe too long for a six year old.

Doesn't look like a vomitorium, more like a sink to wash your clothes in.
