Beach houses have always been a popular accommodation choice for those enjoying long vacations or traveling in groups. As lockdown restrictions around the world are gradually lifted, Aracari expects to see an increase in the number of travellers seeking privacy and looking to rent a beach house in Peru. The best beach houses offer travelers greater space, guaranteed privacy the same luxuries enjoyed in hotel stays. Renting a beach house in a post-covid world will make a lot of sense, but where is the best place to rent a beach house in Peru …
Peru’s 1300-mile coastline features an array of magnificent sandy beaches, but nowhere will you find them more idyllic than in the country’s tropical northwest. Year-round sunshine, sapphire-colored water, and a luxurious selection of accommodation away from the crowds remain one of the country’s hidden gems. In the 50s, Ernest Hemmingway and his friends flocked to the coast of Northern Peru to experience its world famous deep sea fishing. Marlin fishing is still possible in and around Mancora but it is mainly its world class surfing that attracts visitors from far and wide. It is easy to spot dolphins from the comfort of your verandah, and if spotting marine wildlife is your preference, an excursion by yacht to take you up close to migrating humpback whales is a must. And all this is possible on a scheduled or private 1 hour flight from Lima. Aracari has a range of beach houses near Mancora (casas en Máncora) to suit every traveler’s budget and preferences. So, without further ado here is our roundup of the best beach houses in Peru.
