Last stop in Peru was in a small coastal town called Mancora. Popular as a party place for locals and other South American tourists it has a big resort style Loki hostel that is the main attraction for backpackers!
The 5 or so days there involved copious amounts of drinking, eating and partying just like back home over the Christmas period but with the addition of great weather every day and a pool!
The town itself is in a bit of a decline in terms of backpackers but Loki was fully booked, we had 150 for Christmas dinner and had a group of about 25-30 mates that would all move in together to Montanita and some further on after as well. so a perfect way to spend Christmas abroad...
Some of the funny characters...
