CULTURE

Cabo Blanco is a historic fishing village outside of Mancora. In the 1950s and 60s, A-list celebrities and big-game fishermen flocked to its shores for a chance to catch a “grander,” the nickname for the prevalent 1,000-pound marlins that could be found there. The biggest catch recorded was, and still is, the 1,560-pound black marlin by game fisherman Alfred Glassell, Jr. in 1953.

Take advantage of Peru's biodiverse marine ecosystem and head to Mancora or Punta Sal for some of the best scuba diving and, if in town during the months of August through October, visit Los Organos for a chance to spot Humpback Whales swimming and leaping out of the water alongside their newborns.

NATURE

For the nature lover, it’s hard to beat the sight of a Humpback Whale acrobatically leaping out of the ocean deep. During the months of August through October, Peru’s northern waters are excellent for whale watching. This is when Humpback Whales enter Peruvian waters to breed and calve. There’s a good chance you’ll even spot one of the newborns swimming along beside its giant mother, likely its very first swim.

Truly, Peru’s northern beaches are a year-round destination having pretty consistent
weather all year round and temperatures rarely ever dropping below 77 °F (25 °C).

No matter what time of year you choose to visit, you will have your fun in the sun. If you have a preference for tranquility and fewer crowds, then it is advised to visit between the months of September through November when there are fewer visitors in the area. If you plan on surfing, November is a great month when waves are at their best. The months of December and February are heavily flocked with many tourists making it less desirable for those desiring more solitude. More info
