Aranwa Vichayito Bungalows and Carpas is a beach resort and spa offering innovative and luxurious tented accommodation and cottages on the Pacific coast near Mancora.

Situated on a soft sandy beach facing the Pacific Ocean and catching the coppery rays of the sun as it sets beyond the horizon, Aranwa Vichayito Bungalows and Carpas is a relaxing family-friendly but also romantic beach resort (weddings are hosted here occasionally). It is a just a short drive to the lively little resort of Mancora but far enough away to be isolated from any potential boisterousness.   

An unusual property, it offers nine thatched cottages and a further 26 Bedouin-style tents.  But this isn’t roughing-it style camping: the spacious, the lofty tents are fully furnished, almost luxurious affairs with bathroom, minibar and air-conditioning. The cottages are also provided with a small kitchenette; an attractive option for families.

There’s an innovative restaurant and a decent-sized pool with sun loungers. Various activities are organised - so that you can observe wildlife such as turtles at play or go horse-riding on the beach - and a spa offering massages.

What our clients say

  • We really enjoyed the whole trip and found the Peruvian people very friendly and helpful and determined to better themselves and their country.

    SJ, Cambridge
  • Colca canyon really exceeded expectations and we hadn't been aware of this destination prior to arranging the trip.

    JA, Staines-upon-thames
  • Most memorable aspect: “, Macchu Pichu and Peru in general, especially in Cusco. We bought ourselves an open top bus ride in Cusco which was excellent value and was well worth doing. We also enjoyed an excellent 4 hour historical city tour in Lima which was a good way to learn about the city.”

    DP, Watford
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Getting to the top of Huayna Picchu.

    PR, Edinburgh
  • The Peru holiday was all very well constructed. Favourite parts were the floating islands, the nocturnal canoe trip and the trek to Macchu Picchu. Organisation was brilliant and it all hung together very well. Thanks!

    AMW, Letchworth
  • Highlights?: Both the Inca Trail and Puerto Maldonado
