Máncora is the place to see and be seen along the Peruvian coast – in summer foreigners flock here to rub sunburned shoulders with the Peruvian jet set. It’s not hard to see why – Peru’s best sandy beach stretches for several miles in the sunniest region of the country, while dozens of plush resorts and their budget-conscious brethren offer up rooms just steps from the rolling waves. On shore most of the action is focused on the noisy main street, with plenty of good seafood restaurants and international flavors from which to choose.
