Peru: Mancora and the north coast

Visit Us

Peru’s chilly desert coastline gives way to warmer waters and a more sub-tropical feel in the far northwest, where the fishing village of Máncora is the foremost destination for Peruvian and foreign holidaymakers, surfers and adventurous travellers. Close to the town are several small, laid-back resorts, with simple accommodation on yawning palm-fringed beaches with views of sunsets reflecting blood-orange over the Pacific. It’s a friendly place, and its great surf means it attracts young (but not exclusively so) visitors who enjoy a lively night life in the bars and restaurants in town.

What our experts say

The surf vibe reverberates around town and there's a really pleasant laid-back, happy and easygoing feel. Street art on walls and buildings around the town give splashes of new life and colour, and white-washed balconies are lined with wetsuits left hanging to dry in the afternoon sun. There’s a buzzing market selling freshly caught fish, and the seafront is lined with a host of ceviche restaurants, bars, and surf shops.
