We arrived in Mancora the weekend of the preliminary presidential election and as a result a total alcohol ban. Not entirely sure why Peruvians are banned from having a tipple for 48 hours – perhaps they get too pissed that they forget to vote? Whatever the reason, the backpacker party surf spot of Mancora was unusually quiet. There were tourists about but lots of restaurants and bars were closed and the ones that were open had a somber (sober?) feeling to them.
