Our recent visit to Los Organos in Mancora, Peru was quite a nice and peaceful trip to the laid back Tropical Paradise.
We stayed at the Costa Blanca de Vichayito, located just south of Mancora on the outer beach road. There are hotels all the way out and if you took the bus you will most certainly be mobbed by the moto taxi drivers as soon as you get off of the bus.
These guys get paid if you stay there by the hotel you choose so you deffiantly shouldnt pay more than a few soles to have them take you around for a tour which we did so you can find the accomidation that suits your taste. We paid s./15 for two moto taxis and we stopped at 5 different places before deciding on the end of the road approach.
We didnt like the places in town as they were very basic and a little on the more expensive side. As you get out of the town it is nicer and much less expensive. Most places have an all inclusive rate but usually includes 3 meals and normally excludes liquor. In town rates ended up being more than double what we paid.
The Costa Blanca at Vichayito Los Organos Peru was the place that had it all. Open air restaurant with lcd tv, 3 meals a day that were some of the best food the whole vacation, free dvd rental, right on the beach with semi private balcony overlooking the breaking surf. They have a very nice and clean swimming pool, fooseball, and the best part is the Beach.
The beach is so beautiful that words just cant describe. The water is warm and very clean. The sand is light and very clean too. This was the cleanest beach I saw on my trip. The fishing boats are out at night and you can see abalone divers in the morning cleaning their catch right on the playa.
There is an abundance of sea life in the water as well. We saw many seahorses, crabs, small squid, octopus, and several spinny puffer fish while walking along the beach. There are Tons of sea shells too. There are vendors that walk by in the morning with seashell and art souvenirs but they dont bother you and are nice. There are also horse back rides on the beach. But as with anywhere don’t leave valuables unattended.
The rates were the most reasonable we found and of all the hotels to the south this was the best we found to our liking. Under $50 per day for 2 adults and 3 kids with a queen size and a bunk bed oceanside with breakfast included.
We liked the food and paid for serveral dinners here too.
