Rates for accommodations in Máncora are seasonal, with the January to mid-March high season commanding prices up to 50% higher than the rest of the year, especially at weekends. During the three major holiday periods (Christmas to New Year, Semana Santa and Fiestas Patrias), accommodations can cost triple the low-season rate, require multinight stays and be very crowded – this time is generally best avoided. We list high-season rates.
South of town, along the Antigua Panamericana, you'll find fewer crowds, prettier landscapes and great midrange and high-end accommodation. A mototaxi between here and town costs between S5 and S10.
