The beach: Enjoy miles of unspoiled sandy beach right out your front door. All beaches in Peru are public which means you can walk or jog as far as you desire in either direction. We frequently see numerous shore birds, jumping fish, and on occasion dolphins and sea lions. Zorritos is 1km (.6mile) to the south and the picturesque fishing village of Caleta Grau is just a few hundred meters to the north. The beach slopes gently, easily allowing wading or playing in the surf.
Puerto Pizarro: This local port city, located in the Tumbes River delta is well worth a closer look. In town there are various simple restaurants and handicrafts vendors. Numerous boat excursions can take you out to see the mangrove forests, known for their beauty and wild birds, crabs and black conchas, and the crocodile ranch, bringing back the endangered Tumbes crocodile. 45 min. away.
Tumbes: The departmental capital of Tumbes lies next to the Rio Tumbes, the largest river on the coast of Peru that runs from South to North in contrast of the other coastal rivers which run from East to West. The city square is very picturesque and the local pedestrian shopping district offers a wide variety of goods. Aproximately 30 min. away.

Aguas Verdes: located on the Peruvian-Ecuadorian border, on the Peruvian side. Just across the international bridge over the Zarumilla River, is an area called Huaquilllas.

"This is my favorite place to stay in the North of Peru. I have stayed here 3 or 4 times and these stays have been the most tranquil and relaxing period of my entire year. Don't come expecting hotel like services, instead expect a nice spacious 2 story, 2 bedroom ocean-view furnished condo with cook-ready kitchen for the price of a nice hotel room. You can take a 3 min taxi into Zorritos or walk 25 min along the beach and still eat or drink at the beach resorts there if you wish - but for lodging those resorts really don't provide any added value unless you value proximity over space and tranquility. Also, Kevin, the manager of this place, is a Peruvian American who grew up in the US and is an exceedingly helpful and knowledgable host. You will also find in Kevin a highly trustworthy host with an unwavering ethical standard, which are important and difficult to verify traits traveling here in Peru. (I say all this as someone who has lived in Peru for over a year and speaks fluent Spanish)."
"Punta Cocos is a very relaxing vacation destination. It's location is far enough from town to have your own private beach and close enough to have all the amenities of Zorritos; restaurants, market, transportation, etc. We visited in early August and had great weather, and on the 3 miles of beach that we walked almost daily, saw only a handful of people during the whole week. I hope the area keeps it's charm for years to come. The staff was very attentive to our needs and was always available as they live on the property. Being on the beach. the washer was especially usefull. The units have air, but we never used it as there are ceiling fans, and all windows are screened. The owners are in the process of giving the place a "facelift" as is always needed with a property exposed to the elements near a beach, and am looking forward to seeing their progress on my next visit. Yes, I will be going back...it's only 5000 miles from my house!"
"This is an awesome place. Highly recommended to be with family or friends, Kevin is a really good host. This is our fourth visit!"
