Sun, sea and sand never really gets old, does it? It’s exactly what will be on your itinerary in Mancora, Peru. Backpack it, and book your hostel or hotel with Culture Trip.

Leave the suitcases and all-inclusive buffets for other holidaymakers and explore this coastal hotspot in Peru with nothing more than a backpack and a sense of adventure. Mancora’s endless sandy beaches may draw the jet-set, but well-priced restaurants, lively nightspots and budget-friendly rooms along the shoreline mean this popular resort town can be enjoyed by all. The best bit? Save money on where you choose to sleep and you can stay even longer.
