Mancora attracts beach goers year round, while Lima - on the other hand - has only three months of swimsuit weather: January, February and March, though wet suits make surfing a year-round possibility.
I can't speak to how hot it gets in Mancora during the Peruvian summer, but it sure was sweet last time I went in July.
In comparison, a trip to the Oregon coastline last month reminded me just how cool the beaches can be there. I needed to sweater-up in the middle of the day to watch my son surf.
