Instead of spending New Year’s Eve sipping eggnog and peering out the window at snow-covered hills, ring in the coming year at the beach! In countries like Peru, late December often brings comfortable temperatures. Though it might not be warm enough to go swimming, the weather is ideal for beach parties.
Fans of surfing and seafood may want to visit a beachside town like Huanchaco, a destination known for its amazing waves and important role in the development of cebiche, Peru’s national dish. To celebrate like a true Peruvian, book a trip to Máncora for the holiday. Admire the sunset while riding horseback on the beach or party hard with the locals at one of the town’s many clubs and bars. Crack open a coconut and lounge under a palm tree until the clock strikes midnight. Other popular beach destinations include those in Lima and the surrounding areas, such as Punta Hermosa, Punta Negra, Pulpos, and San Bartolo. Travelers are likely to find many clubs and hotels in these regions hosting parties celebrating the coming Año Nuevo.
For Californians looking to enjoy a Peruvian beachfront New Year’s Eve celebration, La Costanera Restaurant is the place to be. Offering breathtaking views of scenic Montara Beach, La Costanera is the ideal place to enjoy an evening of celebratory fun.
