Sun, Booze and Turtles!
Our time spent in Mancora consisted mostly of doing very little and drinking a lot. A beer pong tournament, hours of ping pong practice, another karaoke night, too much civiche, too long spent by the pool, a game of giant Jenga, a few Pisco sours, some turtles and pelicans later we were about ready to move on.
Loki Hostel is truly a party place and a great place to meet people. And despite the bar on the beach outside our dorm playing thumping music until the small hours we actually slept pretty well - which is not something most do at Loki.
Our first night there we bumped into a couple of guys that we met in Banos, who have been driving around the world for the past 14 months in a tuk tuk and have just broken the world record. It is for a great cause so here's a shout out to the guys and a massive congratulations! http://www.tuktuktravels.com/
After a few days at Loki our friends from Banos, Lou and Andy arrived and after another karaoke night where Lou smashed it again we ventured out to El Nuro beach the next day. At El Nuru the fishermen throw the fish guts off the pier and the turtles come to feed, along with some pelicans, gulls and vultures. A quick dip in the water, which was after the fish guts had dispersed, and unfortunately most of the turtles too and a rather large bird poo on my head we took the taxi back and resumed our position by the pool.
Our final night saw us create some inspired head gear for the Hawaiian themed party, where we also bid farewell to Lou and Andy. We also managed to walk up to the lighthouse and catch the sunset, which saw us do pretty much all Mancora has to offer.
