Safety/Transportation/Lodging tips to surf all of Peru« on: October 25 2010 17:10:00 »
I am going to Peru to surf for 6 weeks with one other friend and I'm concerned about being robbed while surfing. How safe are the hostels near the breaks in the Lima area to leave a camera, passport, money, etc.? What about the hostels near the breaks of Northern Peru? Is there such a thing as a waterproof passport/money holder that can be strapped to a leg while surfing?
Also wondering..will we be able to travel solely by bus to surf the main breaks throughout Peru? Or is it advisable to hire a tour guide/driver when traveling to some of the remote destinations of the Northern coast? What about taxis/hitch-hiking?
Lastly, is lodging available at all of the main breaks in Peru? What are average hostel rates per night when outside of Lima on the coast? Are these hostles safe?
