Leaving Huanchaco and heading north to our last destination in Peru, Mancora (can you believe we've already been in Peru for 6 weeks!?!) we were slightly apprehensive. We’d met loads of travellers who said they’d hated Mancora as it was too busy, too full of people only wanting to party and just simply not that nice. However on the other hand we’d also met loads of people that loved it.
From the advice of a couple girls we met in Huanchaco we booked our accommodation at Kontiki Bungalows, and this may have been the best destination we've made in our 4 months travelling. Okay maybe not the best, but it was up there, this place is beautiful! I mean.. look at that view!
As well as the hostel being beautiful, having an amazing view, having our own balcony and hammock; the owner Jurg, is incredibly nice and super helpful. He picked us up from the bus station and even drove us to the hospital later that night so that Sean could get hooked up to an IV due to some serious dehydration after a very intense episode of food poisoning!
We enjoyed Mancora, there wasn't a lot going on but that's what we liked about it was a great place to just hang out, read, swim and surf. A nice place to spend our last few days in Peru.
Oh and don't worry, Sean's all good now!
Next up, Guayaquil, Ecuador and then the Galapaogs! Yippee!
