A Seat In Peru Made Just For You

A true desert outpost, the Peruvian town of Mancora enjoys the most sunshine hours of anywhere in the country. Unlike the rest of Peru the water is warm enough to surf without a wetsuit, a welcome complement to an area already featuring some of the best waves in South America.

Hemingway knew what he was doing when he set up shop in nearby Cabo Blanco, an authentic fishing village where the ceviche is some of the freshest on the planet and the days pass with a simple peacefulness unique to many coastal escapes.

While outdoor activities abound around Mancora, from kitesurfing to fishing to morning yoga sessions, on this particular morning the to-do list consists of nothing more than a good book, a cold drink, and watching whales splash on the endless horizon.

It's Always Summer in Mancora

It is said that summer never leaves the north shore of Peru. The region's proximity to the Equator means that winters (June – August) see daily temperatures in the high 20s Celsius, while the summers (January – March) frequently range into the upper 30s. Mancora was once a tiny, laid-back fishing town, but in recent years it has blossomed into a popular vacation spot. The beaches are spectacular, and the waves are well-known throughout the region. Mancora is especially popular with young people, and the festive atmosphere revolves around the tourist trinity: beach, food, and drink.

Beach ball

Mancora, a tiny fishing village in northern Peru near the border of Ecuador, is one of the most beautiful beach towns I've ever visited. Walk the beach and you pass fancy boutique hotels, old wooden fishing boats, vendors hawking coconut water and jewelery, and kite surfers gearing up to fly over the waves. At the end of the day, locals of all ages gather on the beach to play football (soccer).
