How to get there

Transport
Car, Bus
Access
No walk

Fly to Tumbes and drive 1.5 hours, or Piura and drive 2.5 hours to Mancora. You can also fly to Guayaquil, Ecuador and take a 6 hour bus ride directly to Mancora. Getting transportation from any of the airports is easy. The cheapest way is to fly to Lima as there are often very cheap flights from Ft.Lauderdale and Miami. From Lima to Mancora is 15 hour bus ride, but there are 2 companies which provide sleeper buses with seats that fully recline into a bed. The ride up the coast is a good way to see the country. Cruz del Sur and Excluciva; you can purchase Cruz del Sur tickets online. Be warned that Spirit Airlines from Ft. Lauderdale, while cheap, only allows 1 bag for luggage; not 1 suitcase and 1 kite bag.
