Máncora is a small beachtown smacked on the PanAmericana at the Peruvian Northern coast. During holidays, peruvians come all the way from Lima to spend their holidays at the beach. It turns into a real partytown with an overcrowded beach and bars competing for the loudest music day and night.

If you don't mind loud music there should be enough bars to still your thirst.
- WooHoo Bar. has a party atmosphere downstairs and a chilled out open upstairs terrace with a dart board and good views of the town, playing great music at a volume that won't make your ears bleed.
