Despite the fact that it’s so far north in Peru it’s practically kissing Ecuador, Mancora magnetically draws surfers from around the globe. Rent boards from thatch-roof huts for as little as $10 per day; beachfront accommodation is a steal; and up-and-coming restaurants serve innovative, global cuisine for a fraction of what it would cost to refuel at home. Best, there are no territorial wave wardens here—swells are shared between locals and travelers alike in this friendly, laid-back beach town.
If kayaking across the world’s highest navigable lake or climbing through rainforest canopy holds any appeal, this is the destination for you.
