Poza De Barro - Other Activity Máncora - Peru

Deep off the Pan-American Highway, up Quebrada Fernández, in the midst of the dry forest of Cerro de Amotepe, a refreshing treat from the salty sea awaits Máncora: Poza de Barro. This small, single pool is full of warm mud, perfect for recharging road-weary travelers. Its highly concentrated minerals are said to be good for relieving stress, arthritis and other pains. Along the road up to the thermal mud bath, local farmers sell their products made of goats milk, honey, algarrobina (carob) and other fruits of the land.
