This off the beaten track seaside village south of Mancora is filled with colorful murals that reflect the region’s vibrant spirit.
Lobitos is one of my favorite places to visit on the Peruvian coast. I come here to surf (yikes, still learning), write and meditate, meet fascinating locals, and to walk across the long uninhabited beaches. I also love to marvel at the many lively murals that decorate this tiny village. Here are several of my favorite pieces of art. What I love most is how creative artists have been in giving life to things that many would otherwise overlook as ugly, such as fallen-down buildings.
