About this food issue: What foods have made you sick? What is good to order that won't make you sick? What dishes are really good? And what do you pay to go out for the really good food you mention in Lima? Any veteran Peru travellers or Peruvians out there have any advice on how to find the goods? Eating new and exotic food is a huge part of travelling. Food poisoning is always a hazard anywhere.Eduardo wrote: ↑Thu Feb 28, 2019 5:01 pmMy wife still hasn't forgiven me for making her spend two weeks in Pacasmayo.

Peru is quite far from Europe and expensive to fly to.
My stomach still hurts. I felt everyone in Paracas got some infection from food. The food wasn't that good in general, compared to Brazil for example..
The food IS great in Lima though - some of the best in the world in my view. I would go back just to eat. Mancora also has some excellent food but not at the level Lima is famous for. The small random towns though will probably not be kind to your stomach. But those waves are sweet for goofy riders like me...
Worst I ever got was on Kauai. Salmonilla. Spraying mud in every direction. I was certain I was dying. Ask your wife what exactly got her sick so we can all try to avoid it! You got me worried, I'm all queezy now.
My buddy went last year to Pacasmayo, he reckoned it was so crowded he didn't want to surf. Said he'd stay home and surf next time for thinner crowds. Heard other reports from hardcore surfers that for surfing Pacasmayo has been ruined by crowds. But I've heard the kiting is good, that the wind blows solid 10m about half the time. Apparently not solid 7m every day like La Ventana or something. True?
Ok so correct me if I'm wrong but A) you'll get sick B) You can't foil as there's fishing nets all over C)If you lose your board to the beach it will get stolen D)Too crowded for surfing when the wind doesn't blow which is half the time. True or False?
