Máncora Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 39 photos

Before coming to Máncora I had lived in Cusco for three months and been travelling around Bolivia for a month... I was missing the coast and the ocean a lot. Outisde of Peru you often hear about Trujillo as a destination (good surf) and I had thought to go there... but once I was in Peru people tell you about many different places to stop and Máncora is one of those places.

Some people just come for a few days as they head north into Ecuador or south towards Lima, most people I met tended to stay a week.

I came for a week and stayed at Loki hostel - which was fun, but a week there was more than enough for me... I switched to the hostel Kokopelli and was a guest there for a week and liked it so much that I got a job there for five weeks! I was sad to leave in the end as I had made some awesome friends and had some crazy and incredible memories as well.

This page is a work in progress, but I hope to have it finished soon.
