Zorritos Beach

Zorritos Beach has been referred to as the “Land of Eternal Summer,” and that alone is reason to visit. Lazy beach days, warm ocean water, easy surfing waves, fresh local fish, and plenty of ice cold beer, have made this one of the most interesting fishing and surfing beaches in Peru. Summer-like air and water temperatures are consistent year-round, making this laid-back beach ideal for any season. Nearby attractions, like the El Tubo hot spring and Los Hervideros natural mud baths, also make this a beach town that can be turned into a full vacation destination.

Getting there

Reaching Zorritos is simple. The Pan-American Highway runs directly through the town, which means accessing it by car or bus from any main city along the coast is possible any day of the week. Fly into Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport, and you’ll have a roughly 20 hour-long bus ride to the beach, but you can also fly from Lima to Tumbes with LAN Peru, and finish the trip with a much shorter bus ride to the beach. North Americans can easily catch a flight to Lima from Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary or Ottawa.
