This beautiful beach is located in KM 174 of the Panamericana Sur highway, in Chincha Alta. Wakama could be a location for a movie.
But it’s also a perfect destination to disconnect and leave the problems behind: there is neither WiFi nor TVs.
You can feel the sand from the first moment you arrive.
The accommodations are rustic and colorful cabins that belong to the Wakama hotel (the only hotel in there). There are 16 cabins, built with Eucalypt logs and palm leaves. They host up to 12 people, and are facing the sea.
Usually, hotel guests arrive with fishing equipment and wood to light campfires. The hotel also offers horseback riding (S/25 for 20 minutes) and massages (from S/80 for 45 minutes), among other activities for the visitors.
On the other hand, the place has a restaurant, with seafood as its specialty. The average costs are around S/12 for breakfast and lunches start from S/20. Pizzas are a very popular choice for dinner and its prices start from S/35.
Wakama’s hotel offers two options to book, depending on the days of the week you’re staying, from Monday to Thursday or from Friday to Sunday. The prices vary from $300 to $600.
How to get to Wakama Beach? Transportation companies PerúBus and Jaksa travel to Chincha. Then, you need to take a taxi that will cost around S/50.
Some travelers stop at Wakama just to rest a few hours, lunch and enjoy the sun and the sea before continuing their routes.
