After hiking the Inca Trail, we needed a bit of a break, so we headed to the beach town of Mancora, Peru. Mancora is a tiny town that's mostly for people wanting to surf. There are a few restaurants and beach shops sprinkled in the dusty downtown, but mostly it's a sleepy little place with not a lot of action. This suited us just fine! We spent a lot of time hanging at our awesome hotel (Claro De Luna). They have a pool and are located right on the beach, so we spent our days playing in the water, eating at their amazing, on-site restaurant and just relaxing after our hike. We did go fishing one day, and instead of the fancy fishing trip we are used to, we went with a local on his personal boat who spoke no English. Talk about a local experience. We did catch fish, though, which our hotel was nice enough to turn into ceviche.
(can you find the wild iguana?!?!)
