Overall Score


In addition to the impenetrable jungle and ancient monuments, Peru can also boast comfortable modern beaches, one of which is Mancora, with its sandy beach with yellow-golden sand.

The city is located next to the Pan-American Highway, so you can get here from Lima by any land transport. The travel time will then be 17 hours and the trip will cost about 150 PEN. By plane Lima – Piura takes about an hour and a half, Lima – Tumbes about 2 hours. From the border with Ecuador, it is only 120 kilometers. From Chiclayo, the trip will take 6 hours.

100 USD = 376.10 PEN
