A hotel owned by french? in Peru? No thanks, i'd rather stay at the Chicama beach hotel $40 and a great room overlooking the break.

Spent a month and a half in Peru last April. Easily one of the best trips I have ever taken. The food, people, culture and waves were simply amazing. I caught a couple swells at Chicama and never uderstood who would pay for the boat service. Yes you are a pansy if you ride the boat, bottom line. I loved every minute of the walk back up the point watching the longest waves I had ever seen break and anticipating my next ride. I understand it provides the locals with jobs but it is the perfect metaphor for the exploitation of developing nations. Fat, wealthy gringos catching a ride on a boat when for decades people have walked the point happily enjoying the scenery and the experience. Just my two cents. Anyhow, you can see some photos of the trip on my blog www.mobilelving2.blogspot.com

i like your discussion and i'm definitely in tony's side. I'm peruvian (from Lima) and i have been going to chicama since i was 14. And we understand that surfing chicama is a kind of pilgrimage. getting there and reaching the line-up every time you want another wave.
chicama is been always one of Peru's soul surfing meccas and now we see that resort as the beginning of the end. Of course the wave wont vanish but the magic for sure would. I'm still living in europe but planning my return to peru in two years time and actually i'm thinking in moving to chicama so lets hope the vibe is gonna be alright!

Sounds like a great idea to me. The dislike is understandable but my fiance and I want a great place to honeymoon plus surf. There's nothing wrong with wanting a little luxury with your surf if it's for your honeymoon. No one wants to rough it on their honeymoon, I know people who have, it's not the best.
