Surf, duh. Whether you’re a pro or a novice, there are waves for ev­ery level and the water is al­ways warm, so you’ll never need a wet­suit (but a rash guard is al­ways a good idea). Psy­gon Surf Camp (left) is right on the beach—you can’t miss it—and of­fers lessons and cheap board rentals.

WHERE TO STAY KiChic only has nine rooms, so if it’s full, book neigh­bour­ing Aren­nas Man­cora. The mod­ern min­i­mal­ist re­sort has an elab­o­rate pool and lounge area where servers hap­pily bring you cock­tails as you sun­bathe. Most rooms have cute lit­tle rock gar­dens, and the grounds are filled with co­conuts for the tak­ing.

WHEN TO GO Over Christ­mas and New Year’s, there are huge full-moon par­ties on the beach—all­night events with DJs. It’s the busiest time but also the most fun. Fam­i­lies from all over South Amer­ica camp out on the sand. Equally great is whale-watch­ing sea­son, be­tween Au­gust and Oc­to­ber, when hump­backs travel to Peru’s warm wa­ters to give birth.
