Laguna Surf Camp

Bungalow in Máncora

This laid-back pad is a hidden gem, one block back from the beach in its own little rustic oasis. Older Indonesian-style bamboo bungalows sit around a pleasant sandy garden right near the water and lots of swinging, shady hammocks will provide days of entertainment. New five-bed dorms are a boon for budgeteers.

The cheery owner, Pilar, who is also a surf instructor, is a joy and nailed the essence of Máncora years ago.
