Video: Mancora Beach, Peru

Bringing you a glimpse of the sunny, beer-drenched beaches of Mancora Peru. The spot to stop along Peru's North Shore for surfing, impossibly fresh ceviche and party hostels right on the beach, our time in Mancora was nothing less. Your first stop outside of the cities and highlands. After Mancora, there are a few more spots along the North Shore of Peru that are known for surfing, head to…

Mancora, Peru: Surf, Ceviche & Party Hostels

    Mancora, Peru is a tiny beach town turned into surfer-partier-backpacker black hole. In a good way. Apparently ten years ago there was little reason for tourists to be there, until hostels such as Loki del Mar made a destination of it. Now, the hostels party hard poolside during the day and at little clubs on the beach at night. Hangovers are cured by surfing, eating shockingly…

12 Sights & Sounds of Lima

Coming to Lima you'll hear a million different things, good and bad, about the city. The food is amazing, go! The sky is always grey, don't go! It goes on forever. But we are particularly fond of this city, and think too many people pass it up to head straight to Cusco, while Lima has a personality all of it's own that is worth getting to know.

Quito, Ecuador: Standing on the Equator and Endless Beautiful Architecture

  Thanks to our taxi driver in Baños, we made it to Quito by that evening. Our original plan was to hop off the bus, book it to the Equator, and return to the bus station in time for a night bus out. We hadn't really had a sufficient amount of time to work with in the first place, but figured it was better than spending those few hours in a bus station and seeing nothing at all. However,…

From the Tree House on the Edge of the World: Baños, Ecuador

  When I knew I needed to cross the border to Ecuador to renew my Peruvian visa, I was originally headed for the beach. But just weeks before, Henry and I saw a photo of that swing that goes out over a cliff...if you troll Pinterest travel, you've seen it a million times. Its a simple tree house with a swing on long rope that drifts out over a deep green valley, usually with some fog…
