History of Mancora :
Even though Peru has a huge coastline due to the Humboldt Current that dominates large parts of the Peruvian Coast, water temperatures for the Pacific Ocean are not the most comfortable. This is true from the border with Chile till around the city of Trujillo where this colder sea current turns away further from the coast. This means that the far north coast of Peru, close with the border with Ecuador has the best beach options in Peru. Also blessed with a warm climate throughout the year, this is the place to go for some down time on the beach. Mancora is probably the best known name but for those looking for a little quieter place to enjoy the beach, Vichayitos is probably your pick.
