The water is cold for Peru at this time either a 4/3 or 3/2 will be enough. Booties yes, many rocky spots etc. Northern Peru the water temp changes a whole lot. I would say from Chiclayo to Lima be prepared for a fullsuit and booties. Also check out a site called for some good info also Tracks mag. has a good info under travel for Peru.
