While you’re staying in Máncora, you’ll be in the perfect location to explore the most exquisite stretch of Peru’s beaches. Known for their reliably perfect surfing conditions, you couldn’t pick a better spot to familiarize yourself with the ocean’s terrain. Local surf shops are happy to rent you a board and provide a few expert tips. Kite-surfing – a combination of surfing and sailing – has also become a popular in recent years.
If you’re looking for a more laid-back pastime, the same conditions that make it ideal for surfing also make it a perfect place to lounge in the sun. To get an idea of the lay of the land, consider a horseback exploration of local beaches. It’s probably the best way to cover lots of coast in the course of an afternoon.

Hotelier Arte y Cocina’s restaurant is a well-known institution in its own right. The Donde Teresa Restaurant is run by famous Peruvian chef Teresa Ocampo and her sons. Located right on the beach, you can order seafood specials a short walk from their natural habitat.
Hotlier Arte y Cocina sits just 65 feet (20 m) from the beach. You’ll get to enjoy the view from your room, or your private terrace, which is equipped with a hammock and other patio furniture. Lounge by the pool facing the beach, or spend time with your traveling companions on the picture-perfect outdoor patio. When you’re ready to tear yourself away from the beach, make the 40-minute journey from Máncora to explore the Zorritos hot springs, bubbling with health-giving minerals.
