Hello! I'm in Tumbes, Peru! I'm so exited! Tumbes is a city in northwestern Peru, on the banks of the Tumbes River. It is the capital of the Tumbes Region, as well as of Tumbes Province.

My 2 Months in Peru

Aug 19, 2009 - Tumbes

Well, we got a bus from Chiclayo and were ready to cross the border into Ecuador. We stopped overnight in a border town called Tumbes where we were able to catch an international bus to Ecuador. We had heard some bad things about Tumbes and unfortunately they turned out to be true. We are arrived in the evening having a hotel lined up, when our cab driver tried to tell us that the border was closed due to demonstrations and we should stay at a different hotel in a different town. After turning down his offer and ignoring his 'concerns'...

May 19, 2008 - Peru in a week!

What a week it has been, I´ve hardly had chance to catch my breath lol! After the Colca Canyon we headed up to Nazca to see the Nazca Lines which was pretty awesome, although it was foggy when we arrived by bus at 5am and had to wait til late afternoon to fly in the 3-passenger aircraft due to a backlog of reservations. It was a lot of hanging around but we killed time visiting the museum and watching a video on the mystery of the lines which further stimulated our interest. After that we got a bus to Huacachina, an oasis in ther middle of...

May 2, 2007 - Peru - Tumbes

Buenas Dias from Peru! We were up early to catch a bus that would cross the Ecuadorian and Peruvian border without having to disembark in the border town of Huayquillas. Stumbling out the hostel at 5am into darkness we managed to find a cab to take us to the bus station and we jumped onto the bus to Machala. Comfy seats, foot rests, tv and an on board toilet - a great start to the day! As usual the scenery was stunning and we just sat there looking out of the window taking it all in. We were heading down from the mountains towards the...

Mar 22, 2007 - Guayaguil and Cuenca, Ecuador

I flew from Galapagos to Guayaguil which is in the south-west of the country. There are four distinct regions in Ecuador, the Andes, the Orient (Amazon rainforest), the coastal region and the Galapagos Islands. Guayaguil was in the lowlands. It is the largest city and was a noisy and dirty. The only decent area seemed to be the waterfront area, Malecon, which was lovely. It was redeveloped in 2000 and had cafes, monuments, fountains, gardens and was all very clean and neat. At the north end of that was Santa Ana which was an area of...

Jan 13, 2007 - TUMBES, Peru

Again, we only stopped here for the 1 night and although it had quite a nice little plaza thing going on, 1 night is all you would stop here. Unfortunatly, our stay started badly as somebody stole Pops fleece from the coach. This happened when we had to leave the bus to go thru an immigration point that turned out to be very confusing. Lack of obvious directions on what to do meant that along with the drivers assistant we had to leave the coach, go thru, then get back on the next bus to catch ours up which had gone on ahead without us (does...

Mar 17, 2006 - No mans land

We're currently in no-mans land between Peru and Ecuador. We have been here 2 hours and have 30 more minutes until our next bus. We actually had a really scary ride here where .... through a long chain of events we ended up in a car with 2 locals who were taking us to the boarder. The whole thing was sketchy and I thought we might get robbed but in the end all he did was charge us a few extra dollars and all was fine. (Although I might have lost a bit more hair!) Now we're on an 11 hour bus to Quito. Hope it's uneventful. Ryan and Christine

Dec 25, 2005 - Peru - Mancora

Feliz Navidad everyone! Mancora is a small (and we mean small) surfing town in the upper northeast corner of the country. About 2 hours south of the Ecuador boarder. We're spending 3 days here. Last night, Christmas Eve, we arrived in Tumbes, met a great couple from Puerto Rico and shared a 2 hour cab ride to Mancora (ALL FOR THE BARGAIN PRICE OF $20). We arrived in Mancora around 11pm and still hadn't found a place to stay. Most everything was booked. A lady from Utah, actually, helped find a place at a friend of hers who had a bungalow...

Oct 5, 2005 - Mancora - Punta Sal

Passed over a sewer and went from lush green Ecuador into stark, dry Peru and the change was immediate and amazing. Due to the change in itinerary we spent the next 4 nights camping on the deserted beach in Punta Sal, a resort which is in the initial stages of construction but is totally empty at the moment. And this was beautiful... Each morning I was up to see the sun-rising over the water, have a run and swim before seeing anyone else!! Spent a morning fishing - 5 fish for me though not the best, which were then cooked for dinner later....
