The north of Peru is renown for its excellent waves. Beginners to professional surfers visit the north of the country primarily for this reason. Organitos beach waves are right in front of the home where you would stay. These waves are small and well formed, which are easy to surf for newbies but still allow experts to have fun. Right around the point on the left is the Wave of Organos, hollow and faster – within a five minute walk. To the right of the house is Casablanca, a favorite wave of intermediate surfers. Piscina and Cabo Blanco are excellent waves and can be reached by a 30-minute car ride.
From late July, and during August, September and October, you can observe amazing humpback whales, who arrive to the northern coast of Peru from Antarctic waters for breeding and calving during the reproductive season.

Peru holds the world record of bird species, with 1,814 species described by James Clements and Noam Shamy in “A Field Guide to the Birds of Peru”. Of these, 120 can be found only in Peru. Seventy two of these species are in danger of extinction. On the beach and the grounds surrounding the home you can start to observe birds and other animals. The national parks and reserves in this area are home to the greatest number of species in danger of extinction in Peru, such as the Cortarrama Peruano (Phytotoma raimondii). One can enjoy birdwatching in the Parque Nacional Cerros de Amotape 30 minutes away or also one hour further north in the Santuario Nacional Manglares de Tumbes.

To the south is a long stretch of solitary beaches that lead to the fishing village of El Ñuro. Continuing south along the coast is Cabo Blanco; this small fishing village was Ernest Hemingway´s hideout and his inspiration for “The Old Man and the Sea”. It also holds the world record for Black Marlin Fishing and has one of Peru´s most perfect waves for surfing.
