Tumbes

Welcome to Peru! Our first stop in Peru after crossing the border, Tumbes, was also the first place Pizarro, the ancient Spanish conquistador, landed to begin his conquest of the Incan empire.  Although we only spent one night in Tumbes, we were stunned by the loudness of the city and the immense heat of the coast. In the heart of the city, we explored a heightened level of hustle and bustle, with tuktuks and street meats everywhere. Even though our time in Tumbes was short, it left an impression on each of us.

Deserted
Just Hangin’
