Northern Peru - the sun sets like an Orange half disappearing behind the blue punch of the ocean. It’s a popular beach but you have privacy because you are staying in the Eco Lodge Mancora. This small but perfectly formed hotel is part of the eco-lodge movement. Therefore it is completely carbon neutral and built using local materials in the traditional way. The aesthetics are fine but simple with a gorgeous outdoor pool to swim in. Your room is made from wicker and adobe and has a private terrace. The hotel specializes in water sports that do not use motorboats. So surfing and kite-surfing are what you will spend your days doing. They have their own instructors so no need to worry about equipment. They also have a fine yoga studio for your active relaxation. And the beach is a short walk away. Breakfast is served daily and dining options are located in the local town which is a two minute drive away.
