Entertainment and Events
Every May or June, during the first big swell of the year, Punta Hermosa comes alive with Peru’s annual big-wave competition. There is no fixed date for the competition and it is usually organized within a week or two—check out www.buoyweather.com (you have to pay) or www.stormsurf.com (free) for the right ocean conditions, or stayed tuned to www.peruazul.com, the country’s premier surfing website.
Otherwise nightlife is clustered around the entry to Punta Hermosa and the few pubs on the waterfront.
