Basically head to Mancora and stay in this town. It has all your needs from hotels, food, point waves etc. Its a very small town and has a very laid back rasta country vibe. From their you can plan day trips an hour north or south. Both directions have waves. Check out and for some more info. Have fun and enjoy this great country of Peru!!!. Also this is the time to be in the north for waves.

I bought the possesion (usofruto) of the Nonura or really Punta Shode point break which is next to Punta Faro. I'm in the process of setting up a surf camp and adventure business. It's a virgin unspoiled area of Coastline and I have a building in Chiclayo 2 1/2 hours away with dunebuggies, watercraft and a 4X4. My goal is to protect the 30 KM of beach from Nonura to Punta Tur. I also have family in Bayovar who has a boat and could provide transportation to bypass the Petroperu

The other option is El Salvador, which will break well in March/April.  SO, the qeustion is, will Chcam braek better in August or March?
