One of the greatest attractives of Peru is that it can offer us with great waves in every season. The tides varies all year long. The most consistent months are April, May, September, October and November and the water temperature varies from 17 to 22 C degrees.
Punta Hermosa is a small village 45 kmts. From Lima.
There´s a 100% surfing enviroment.
But it is the variety of waves that makes Perú a special destiny for surfers of every level of expertise...Big waves like Pico Alto, consistent like Señoritas, La Isla, Punta Rocas y Caballeros, beach break like Puerto Vierjo, Arica, Pulpos, Explosivos and so on.
The Summer Surf Camps (December,January, February and March) are excellent since the conditions are much better in tides and weather..
The water is warmer from December to March and the local surfer¨s clothing
Is lighter, wearing short suits and most of the days, just lycra.
The coast mist, called Garúa, is very similar to rain.
It is never too hot neither too cold and and it is a desertic site while the sea
wild life is plenty and varied.
Part of the Peruvian attractive is its food, mainly made out of sea food, like the “ceviche”. lemmon -cooked raw fish and some other local products an ancient food that was once eaten by the Incas.
The precolimbine culture, once under the inca civilization´s domain, is still a mystery hard to understand for the western world.
An important part of the medical, astrology and mathematical knowledge has been lost but fortunately for us the ruins left behind tell us nowadays about that long lost culture.
Just a few kilometers from Surf Camp in Vista Hermosa you can find the
Incas Ruins of Pachacamac
