Surfing/Hiking - Feb/Mar 2010« on: December 20 2009 14:12:00 »
Just about to book my flight from Vancouver to Lima and thought I would see if there are any others interested in surfing/hiking Peru for 3 weeks at the end of February. This will be my first trip to Peru and it will most likely be a solo adventure. If you're going to be headed that way at the same time, drop me a line. I could use some advice/ a travel companion.

Have I caught you before you booked your trip? I was just curious about what surf spots you were thinking of going to? Also, have you ever thought about flying into Guayaquil, Ecuador and hitting Northern Peru surf spots from there? That's what I was thinking about trying. My idea was to primarily get some time in surfing. I don't have specific plans, other than to keep it cheap. I was thinking January, maybe into February, so maybe we'd have some overlap. At the very least, we should correspond and share with each other what info we can.

with out a doubt the best surf spots are Northern Peru. Easiest, fastest, and cheapest method of travel is to fly into Guayaquil and then take a bus to Mancora and its surrounding breaks. I've also stayed in the southern portion of Ecuador, surfing from Mountanitas and traveling up coast to Manta, hitting all spots in between.
Looking to take another trip at end of March, back to Mancora with the method described.
and solo is the way to go, make friends as you go.

if you wanna do some hiking in feb or march take water proof gear as you gonna be in the rainy season (in the mountains). also feb-march is the end of summer and you could get some flat spells around lima, so your best bet is getting in the north coast where the surf season last till march. you can get a domestic flight from lima to tumbes or piura and then a short bus ride to mancora area where is plenty of surf spots is warm and cheap.
good luck and good waves

Have you think about that Punta Hermosa have the most consistent area of waves in Peru all year around and you also can do some hiking in Pachacamac valley which is 20 minutes by car from Punta Hermosa. My surf camp Peru does tour around and you are 1 hour from Lima the first place where you are going to land in Peru before you travel to the north or the mountains.
I hope that info help you
