If u are going to Piura, dont stay at Piura city..or just do it one day...then go to Colan beach! or Mancora beach!!
Mancora has nice hotels..goooddd seafood and lots of bars! u will want to be layed down on the beach the hole time! and if u like waves and surf! u will have lots of company! there are a lot of brazilians over there..also from USA and Europe...and when is windy..the do surf with the wind too.
Once, i saw a giy that was surfing with his dog in his 'tabla'!! and also.
There is a place called LOBITOS..close to Mancora beach..and is 'the point' as they call u...i recomend u to be friend of the locals and they will show u! My friends loved Lobitos because waves are good and there is no so much people so u can have good waves!
When i was there i learned a lot about surfers culture..haha their lifestyle and their rules..'cause they have rules!
If u want to buy silver and gold..u can find it in CATACAOS! is a cute little town..and is very well know for their silver jewerly.
Also, lots of people created like a route...they go to Ecuador beaches and then all the way down to Peruvian beaches....is called 'The sun route' as i heard.
Colan beach is also good and sometimes they have luaos parties!!.
I took a tour and we were in hot water places with mudd in our faces! so funny!!! but it was good for the skin!
Also..15 minutes far away from Mancora is Punta Sal hotel with its beach! is worthy to go over there!! is a nice place!!! u can see some pics here..:)
PD: DONT FORGET TO TRY CEVICHE! At Piura! u can find the best ceviche! and ask it of Mero fish!
I have been in Piura several times..and actually i lived over there for 4 months doing social work related with dentistry and i lived in a very very veryyy little town! the kis were lovely and i had great times!
