Address: Mancora is 116 miles (187 km) from Piura Airport, about 3 hours by car. There are vans that go to Mancora, but they don’t leave until the van is full of passengers. And there’s not a lot of space in the van if you have luggage. I learned that Eppo Bus goes to Mancora, […]

Address: Approximately 22 miles (35 km) away from Jorge Chávez International Airport. Because Ancón is in Lima, it is possible to take Uber (or taxi) from Central Lima, but I imagine it would cost over 150 soles (U.S. $50).
