Had a long chat with park ranger who wanted us to move again. We were not parked in the designated parking places. He spoke good English. Went for a drive around roads and they had great infrastructure, all new since tsunami in 2010. Toilets were as usual locked. Park is very clean and tidy.
We opened our Wahwah, very interesting. black seeds covered in cotton wool...
On our way out southern end of park met fellow travellers heading to Arica to sell car. Been 8 months from Urshwai to Columbia and back.
We have notice that most people travel up the Pan America highway only with a diversion out to Cusco. We wonder why this is, yes it is faster, but there is nothing to see except rubbish and dirty little towns it is a terrible impression of Peru when there is so much beauty inland and lovely clean mountain villages with very friendly people.
Had lunch on a great beech. John set up the chairs and we had a picnic. Driving south the coastal region was beautiful and one of the prettiest areas we have seen in Peru. The white roads existed on the map only. There were lots of tracks so we stuck to what looked like the most used track through sand dunes. Wonderful to have no rubbish to spoil the ambiance. We navigated OK and found the occasional park sign to welcome us to the beaches.
Camped on small headland by a cross.
