I have mentioned in my previous articles that many people go to Peru, Colombia and Brazil to experiment with spirituality and to get the touch of the exotic shamanic legacy. Rare individualists who already have some degree of spiritual practice would set off to try to reach the Mapuche people in Chile, although they may not be admitted to the tribal communities at all. A greater number of – mainly – Westerners, however, would prefer the open arms of tribal communities in Peru and Colombia, where you simply pay for staying with the tribe of your choice and get what you pay for.
The Huarmey District offers some of the best beaches in the north central region of Peru. Situated about 2 hours car-drive from Chimbote and four-hour from Lima, Huarmey is an ideal place for those who love beach life as well as those seeking solitude and tranquillity.
I got to spend the weekend with Ana Lucia Pastor, a talented young Peruvian woman, who became a yoga instructor in Bali two years ago and whose house in Tortugas beach was inspired by the Balinese vibes.
