 North

Peru

One of the best regions in Peru, with many spots (for those prepared to search), warm water, consistent swell and crowds only in the better known spots (mancora, cabo-blanco). The area from Lobitos to Tumbes requires a big southerly swell to be running, or smaller westerly swells. In summer northerly swells can rock in. Chicama is one of the best known waves, but other less well known spots are possibly even better (if a little shorter). Generally a mellow place with some of Peru's best waves.

Hostal Delfines? - Where? which city, beach?? Thanks

By Moritz , 15-03-2010

Do not stay at Hostal los Delfines - Do not stay at Hostal los Delfines
Hola compadres,
Travel warning: do not stay in the Hostal los Delfines unless you want your money get stolen from your room while surfing or your bills swapped in false ones.
Beware of a guy named "Michael" who is some sort of administrator of the hostal.
Hostal los Delfines is well known to the local police for those incidents as I learned after filing charges against the hostal's administrator. Unfortunately the staff is clever to steal only from foreign travelers who will be leaving the county soon.
So choose a different place, there are plenty around.
Enjoy your trip
Moritz

I need to know what to expect from the weather can our girls count on solid beach days in the sun in the bayovar region? regarding the surf i think we´re safe. adeus
