The laid-back beach town of Máncora is a haven for surfers and bohemian-minded travelers. Máncora is located along Peru’s northern Pacific coast, about 56 miles (90 km) south of Tumbes. This town was once a sleepy fishing village, but over the past decade it has developed into one of Peru’s top surfing and vacation destinations.
Mancora is known for its incredible waves for surfing all year round and good wind for kitesurfing and windsurfing from May to December. Mancora is an idea destination to escape to year long for sunshine (300 days a year) with no humidity. Enjoy beautiful beaches with warm, clear water, averaging 68* F or 20* C year round, perfect for swimming and relaxation.
One of the best parts about Mancora?
