Local fishermen use special boats to fish around medium level depth water. Their vehicles are called horses, because of their resemblance to the animal and the way people stroll with them and move around the shore. They are constructed with “totora”, a local reed that grows on water, making grass floor on top of it.

Mancora Beach, a “Costanera” with love

Mancora is kind of a small sized village, located north of Peru’s coast, precisely on Peruvian “Costanera” (seafront area). Most Peruvian citizens travel from Lima to this region when they can, each holiday many parties are formed, and at certain points of the year Mancora Beach gets so crowded that from a far seems like a massive beach festival of all day music. Mancora limits with Organos beach and also Las Pocitas, therefore if you want to walk down to any nearby beach you are at a long walk of distance.

Mancora is sort of divided into two sections, the main beach and the South area. Since it’s is a popular destination for locals and tourists from all over the world, most individual travelers search for something quieter, so Mancora’s South beach is easily the one specification people need to know upon arrival. While there is not a magnificent difference, the feeling around town, local people of this culture, and the activities to do… are done in a quieter fashion, Mancora is a beach for relaxation purposes that you surely won’t forget soon.
