When is the best time to visit Vichayito Beach?
Of course, that depends a little on what you want to do. If you want to splash in the clear warm water, drink cocktails and take a nap in your hammock, then you are in the right place for the high season from mid-December to March. If you are looking for good waves to swing on the board, or while practicing kitesurfing in the air, you should establish your trip in the period from April to November. Then the wind conditions are perfect and also the waves make some neat walks.
Hotels at Vichayito Beach
Where can I stay?
In recent years, much has been done on the beach and can be found from the simple cabin to the comfortable room with terrace, plenty of accommodation. The Vichayito Bungalows & Carpas by Aranwa promises tropical sensation and greater comfort. The night costs, depending on the season, between 100, – and 150, – dollars.
How do you get there?
The two closest airports in the “neighborhood” are Tumbes (approximately 1 hour and a half by car) and Piura (around 2 to 3 hours by car). Both are served daily from the capital of Peru, Lima. If you want to take the opportunity, you can take the bus on the Panamericana. It will take up to 19 hours, but it will give you a unique view of the coastal region of Peru while driving.
Many of the hotels organize a shuttle service to pick them up from the airport, which can often be relatively expensive. Those who want to save, therefore, prefer to evade collective vans or buses, which usually go to Mancora. From there to Vichayito, you can take a taxi.
