A mostly flat ride along the coast. This area is fairly dry with several small resort towns. My destination of Mancora is known as a place for surfers to congregate. Signs were now already giving me distances to Lima (my assumed distance is slightly longer since I may not take the most direct route).
A new country means trying to figure out the gas prices. As best I can tell, amounts are measured in gallons and are slightly over $3 US per gallon, so higher than the subsidized prices in Ecuador.
The area had some agriculture, but was mostly dry and primary industry seemed to be tourism more than anything else.
Photo shows it is already drier here than Ecuador.
Found it interesting that the sign was in English.
Zorritos was a nice small town at about the 28km mark. Not sure what those animals are on the sign.
Also here were evacuation signs for Tsunami warnings.
Boats and a pier in one of the places we came along the water.
A mermaid monument.
The town of Acapulco was one of these small places I crossed.
Next town was advertising for a triathlon to be held in September.
Looked at stopping in Canosas for lunch but was mostly through the town before I found an inviting place.
There was an agricultural inspection station and then the road went more inland.
By mid-afternoon I was in Mancora. Found a reasonable hotel and got lunch as well as groceries for next day. Saw a number of tourists walking around that didn’t appear to be from Peru.
