Travel Blogs from Mancora
Arrived around 3am on Sunday after nightlong comfortable bus from Montañita. Ate amazing ceviche. Peru is much more poor than Ecuador. There are hundreds of "cabs" to take you around the city for $2, and are basically chariots attached to motorcycles. Had fantastic piña coladas while listening to a crusty gypsy Peruvian guy swooning all the ladies while he sang and played guitar. Fun night but had to go home early because we were completely exhausted. Traveler's diarrhea ...

... YAY! This was a relief. We grabbed all our stuff even though the driver said we could leave it and went through the lines at the boarder. Really there is nothing stoping you from not going to the crossing, it's odd. Then the driver took us to the next town, to another bus depot where we bought another ticket to Mancora. It left within 10min after getting our tickets and again the luggage got tags and everything. There was another backpacking couple on the bus but they spoke ...
