Your asking for alot of information! Please go to wanna surf and read some books. Peru goes off as far as surf! Northern Peru is where I would go for your time slot and everything your asking. Mancora is the city name and it has everything for you. If your heading to Lima go to Punta Hermosa and stay at " La Casa de Barco" just remember its their summer and Lima can get very crowded. Lima breaks all year but their winter is when its going off. Travel light and smart and during the day if possible.  North or South Peru the middle of the country might not have enough swell energy for consistency?

I just booked my ticket for Peru. I will be there the end of March and early April.  We plan on staying in the North, and I as hoping th get some accurate swell info for that time of year.  We are totally willing to travel but we want to find the best barreling lefts!  Viva Peru!
