Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Caballito de Mar

Off Km 1187, Panamericano Norte, Punta Sal, Tumbes, Peru

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This laid-back beach resort has tropical bungalows with private terraces, an excellent fresh-seafood restaurant, and beach access. Arrange for a surfing, diving, or other excursion, play in the ocean waves, or just relax in one of the comfortable lounge chairs around the small seahorse-shaped pool. All meals are included in the standard room price, or you can opt for the cheaper breakfast-only plan.

PROS
