TumbesBeautiful beaches, wide open plains, rolling hills, and towering mountains make up the diverse terrain de the department de Tumbes where several eco-systems are located such as estuaries and mangroves, the dry equatorial forest (Cerros de Amotape National Park) and the Pacific tropical forest (Reserved Zone de Tumbes). More than 30% de the territory has been declared natural protected areas.

Cerros de Amotape National Park (91,300 hectares) is located on the Tumbes-Piura border and gathers together a great biological diversity. The wildlife is especially assorted with species like the Andean condor, the little spotted cat, the red deer, the peccary, the northern anteater, the spectacled bear, the gray deer, and the Guayaquil squirrel.


The Mangrove Sanctuary de Tumbes (2,072 masl) that is composed de extensive aquatic forests that create a one de a kind environment between the river and the sea is home to black hawks, egrets, and other birds.

Its closeness to the Equator makes the beaches de Tumbes ideal places for surfing, diving, fishing, or simply for the people searching for fun and sun in summer. Punta Sal is thought to be one de the best beaches in Peru because de its white sand and rich marine life. The Zorritos cove is famous for its tranquil water and wide variety de fish.

To the north de Tumbes, you come across Puerto Pizarro, well known for its islands and for its American crocodile farms, a species unique to Peru and one in danger de being extinct. This is also a city where you find large amounts de black scallops and crabs, the basis for an exquisite local cuisine.
