Other sites, as the Chaparri Reserve, in the Lambayeque region is “a habitat for highly threatened Andean spectacle bears, will have a bit of pop-cultural relevance this year with the release of a Paddington Bear film,” it forecasted.
The articles also suggest visiting the “surf village of Mancora” where “community-based tourism projects like sport-fishing and whale-watching charters at nearby Cabo Blanco.” At this beach Ernest Hemingway used to go fishing.
