The surf is sweet in Máncora, and its growing reputation as a surfer's paradise has transformed this once small fishing village into a hopping resort town. During the summer, from late December to March, the city's characteristic sandy beaches swell with surfers and sand-bunnies alike. Due to its popularity (or more precisely, the popularity of its beaches), the town has a number of budget hotels and cheap restaurants. A variety of surf schools and bars ensure that any visitor will have plenty to do, both day and night. Máncora is also one of the few Peruvian towns to have surfable waves almost all year round; even in the off season, the city's streets and beaches are bustling with travelers from around the world.

Máncora continues to grow, the Pan-American Highway now lined with closely packed stalls, hotels and restaurants. Higher-end lodging now perches along the highway south of the Cabo Blanco bridge. In recent years, the beach here has suffered erosion, even endangering the new seaside malecón. This hasn’t affected the surfing, though. Máncora continues to be one of Peru’s premier surfing spots.
