If you want to experience some authentic Peru beach with loads of people, this is the place to check out. A little town, with little street markets, a lot of cheaper restaurants (great authentic ceviche, better than in many places in Lima...) and a not sooo beautiful beach and fisher boats all over the place.

In summer it is quite crowded and in winter it is cold and empty. Would not waste my time visiting unless you are a resident of Lima.

My daughter and I rode on a handmade wooden fishing boat from the Harbor to the Sea. We saw penguins, sea lions and a variety of wildlife! It was a fun day. On the way our guide stopped at a local bakery with a traditional adobe clay oven. We enjoyed fresh bread that I must admit rivaled croissants in Paris.

This is a nice setting with a large number of colourful fishing boats in a peaceful harbour. There is a lot of wildlife in and around the harbour itself, and... More

I was fortunate enough to go to Pucu Sana when I visited my friend who has a house there... It was unlike any place I have been to before.... It's rich and poor, fast and slow, populated but full of nature. We got to wake board in the inlet and then take the boat out to see the sea lions... More

For a wonderful day away from the traffic mayhem of Lima, head south to the coastal fishing town of Pucasana. Our driver/guide Mario first took us along the beach road from Miraflores to Chorillos to compare all the known and secret surfing spots and then we took the old winding highway south to the pre-Inca historical site of Pachacamac, which...
