We escaped Mancora and made it down to Lobitos – about two hours drive but a world away. This place is an old mining town now filled with little surf hostels. We’re staying at a little place called Nacho’s which is really simple but cheap, nice enough and a view of the surf from our room. It also seems to be filled with only Australians again, which we haven’t really had since Central America.
It’s really arid here – the desert extends all the way down to the beach and there’s not much. There’s also not much more to do but surf so we’ve been doing that a few times a day despite there not being much swell (thankfully for me). Thinking we might head out of here tomorrow further down the coast to another surf spot for a week or so and then closer to Lima before we head for the hills.
