Punta Veleros

It's not Machu Picchu or is Mancora and the nearby beaches of the Northern Coast.

You can get the full tropical beach rush as well as perfect world-class waves coming off the Pacific Ocean...or find a quiet beach where you can sip an ice-cold drink under the coco palms.

Yet the coastal or beach areas are barely touched on by many Peru travel guides.

David and Lin Mancora Peru Bamboo Place

I (David) was born in Lima, Peru, of US parents. My wife Lin (Pennsylvania Dutch) and I currently live (as of 2013) in Huanchaco, near Trujillo on the North Coast of Peru.

But you won't be hearing just from us. You'll see photos and read about this fascinating country from real people who are traveling and/or living in the "Country of the Inka."

Sharing experiences and getting questions answered from the insider's viewpoint is what this site is about.

Because of being right here on Peruvian soil, Lin and I as well as our other contributors have the opportunity to find out first hand the out-of-the way well great suggestions for best vacations, tours, and hotels that can be found here.

What Lin and I will be doing as we travel and research this amazing country is to supply information that perhaps you have been looking for and have had a hard time finding. I know that we have spent many hours looking at a lot of good sites on Peru but just not finding some things that were important to us.

Hopefully, we can begin to fill in those gaps on this site.

One of the best things about traveling is sharing!

Do you have a favorite story and/or photo you can share about your Peruvian experiences?

Or why not read favorite stories from other folks?

Huge Cocaine Catch in Huanchaco, Peru

Over three tons of cocaine has been found in a warehouse near the Trujillo airport in Huanchaco, Peru, about 8 minutes from where we live.

The newspaper El Comercio reports that the cocaine was found enclosed in cinder blocks that look like big black unevenly-formed rocks that had to be broken open with sledge hammers.

Eight people were arrested, including 2 Mexicans and six Peruvians.

The cocaine appeared to be destined for Belgium and Spain, where 2.2 pounds (1 kilo) sells for about 45 thousand dollars.

Apparently, the haul belonged to one of the Mexican drug cartels.

At this point only 30% of the rocks have been busted open and authorities estimate there could be six tons of cocaine in all.
