Beautiful, silent, cozy beach. Long stretch, so always a nice quite spot you can find. We walked for 15 minutes, away from Mancora side, and found some nice beach chairs we could use when we bought a drink. The water has a perfect temperature and its clean. A grwat day out. A tuktuk from Mancora costs 7 sol (3 people).... More

Really tranquil and silent,an endless coastline with white sand. There's not much to do though, just relax and enjoy the sea.

If you are looking for a quiet, less crowded place to relax in Mancora area, then this is the right place to go. You can catch a "moto taxi" from Mancora, they charge you between 5 and 7 soles. The place is cleaner than other beaches in Mancora, there is very few people here in the mornings. enjoy this place... More

The most beautiful beach in Mancora. No loud music and a view on wales and turtles in the sea! Just take the Tuktuk and for 5 soles they drop you off at this beautiful beach.

We stayed just outside Mancora (in the northern part) and the beaches there are not as nice as las pocitas. We took a Moto taxi for 5 soles every day to go to las pocitas, then stayed in front of one of the hotels (los corales). As long as you order something at their bar you can use their facilities...

Las pocitas is a nice long beach, it's a few kilometers from mancora but within walking distance (less than an hour). There are many hotels with private sunbeds, which we used after telling the bartender, we will buy a drink afterwards. It's quiet and you can enjoy yourself without many distractions. But the water is pretty cold, at least during... More

Nice place to sit and sip on a glass of pisco sour while you enjoy the protection of the rocks from the waves and take in the scenery and the abundant bird life. Saw vultures and 2 blue footed boobies!

It's so quiet, safe and beautiful! Each house has access to the beach and since it's away from Mancora town it's almost empty.

Las Pocitas is a beautiful beach in Mancora. If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil beach, this is not the beach for you. Pocitas has tons of people and families. You will also find lots of vendors walking up and down the beach selling coconuts, fruit, clothing, and other souvenirs. Be careful swimming in the water because some places... More
