It had a "Bali" style, nice! There were plenty of bungalows to choose, lol. So we went for a 2nd floor one. We didn't have any clue how long we would stay here, since we wanted to check other beaches too.
Well, the town is really small. Restaurants, pubs, bars, stores, etc are located on the main avenue which is also the highway. So be careful when you are crossing it ;) Wow! usually the town is crowded, but it looked like a ghost town. Well, maybe because it was Thursday and low season... No worries, we'd rule the town, lol.
We were walking for quite a while to trying to find what was going in town. First stop was a store where we got some water and pisco of course, hahaha. Then we decided to get something to eat. Of course if you are in Mancora you should get delicious fish and seafood, but you usually have it here just for lunch, so we decided to have something different.
After a delicious meal (seafood salad, pizza & wine), we decided to look for some action. There were lots of bars offering "Happy hours", but they looked so empty... We were almost at the end of the road when we saw one, that had some people inside, so we decided to try it. It was a small place, but had a nice atmosphere. Funny thing about the "Happy hours" here, they last all night long, hahaha. No complains at all :P
The bartender was a nice guy who was from Israel. Somehow he ended living here, lol. Well, he was living in Lima for a while and when he "discovered" this laid back town, didn't think it twice and moved to the north, nice! I had Maracuya Sours (Pisco with Passion fruit) and my friend wanted to try the straight pisco, but not the one we bought.
