A Sustainable Surfing Shangri-la In Peru
Thursday, November 12, 2009
Let’s face it; Peru could be my very own Shangri-la without all these perks. Then you mix in one of the longest breaking left hand waves in the world, a chic resort that caters to local projects of sustainability, and it becomes pretty close to anyone’s ideal.
Machapu Adventures, locally owned and operated, is a new company operating about ten hours north of Lima, near Trujillo. They call the “wave garden” home; offering surfing, resort accommodations, and custom itineraries devoted solely at developing and assisting the local culture, people, and economy.
It’s hard not to like the idea of surfing world class breaks, eating locally harvested food, and then, perhaps, tutoring some children in your down time.
