Just 30 km (18 mi) from the Ecuador border, Tumbes represents an important stopover point for travelers on the way to the neighboring country. Put Tumbes at the heart of your travel plans by using our Peru family vacation planner.

Where to stay

High-rise hotels in the city center offer basic rooms and few additional facilities. If you're going to spend a while in the area, consider accommodations farther along the coast. Take the coastal road west out of town to find pleasant seaside resorts and hotels with extensive views of the Pacific.
