Beaches of Peru

It's easy to get used to the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean in Northern Peru. Our first stop was the city of Mancora where the drinks were cheap and the music didn't stop until three in the morning. Being that the average age at our hostel was 22 we decided to move to the rustic cabanas next door complete with a homemade bar on the sand and people more our age and style where we could sink our feet into the sand and listen to the sounds of the crashing waves.

Our first hostel... five years ago maybe?



Our better hostel:



We spent our days basking in the sun, body surfing in the waves, and filling our bellies with fresh ceviche. Life is good on the beach.



Our second beach town stop was Huanchaco - a Peruvian vacation spot. Kind of neat to be immersed in another cultures vacation destination. We went to some pre-Incan ruins close by but are still not sure if they were real or completely remade. Either way they were interesting to look at.
