Welcome to Máncora


The consistently good surf and bath-tub-warm waters draw a sun-bleached, board-toting bunch, and raucous nightlife keeps visitors busy after the sun dips into the sea in a ball of fiery flames.

Year-round sun means that this is one of the few resort towns on the coast that doesn’t turn into a ghost town at less popular times.

Located about halfway between Talara and Tumbes, Máncora has the Pan-American Hwy passing right through its middle, within 100m of the surf, where it becomes Av Piura, which changes to Av Grau halfway through town. At the southern entrance to town, there's a turn off from the Pan-American that takes you south along the coast on the Antigua Panamericana. This quiet stretch has the best high-end and midrange resorts, and direct access to Las Pocitas and Vichayito Beaches, probably the best stretch of sand around.
