I’ve talked about Peruvian girls a bit already. On the whole, you’ll find the chicks in Peru to be a cute and fun-loving bunch. While they’re not the best women you’ll find in Latin America (on average), I found Peruvianas to be sweet chicks. Plus, you won’t need much Spanish or dancing abilities to make some sweet love in Peru. Some white skin and a western passport should suffice.
That being said – you don’t have as many different cities to meet Peruvian girls as you do when visiting Colombia. Peru is similar to the Dominican Republic in this regard. You have a few great cities to meet women in Peru and a bunch of near worthless places. As well, the capital is much better than all the other cities combined for meeting Peruvian women, and the beach towns aren’t that great for girls.
So without further ado, here are the seven best cities to meet cute Peruvian girls:
Hands down the absolute best city in Peru to meet Peruvian women. No other town in Peru comes even close to competing with Lima regarding women, nightlife options, and quality of chicks. Lima is a wild place. I had nights in the club were there would be 4-5 girls I’d already made sweet love to in the same club (while I was with a different girl).
You can have a lot of fun in Lima, but the city is not as big as you’d think it was. Listed at over 8 million people – you’ll be staying in Miraflores. And Miraflores feels like a city of 2 million. It doesn’t matter, though. If part of your travel plans include attempting to meet a Peruvian woman and have sex – Lima is your best option. You won’t need Spanish in Lima, and that terrible way you dance to techno will be seen as cool.
If you get sick of Lima, but are still looking to make love to a Peruvian woman or three – then Arequipa is your next best shot. It’s the second largest city in Peru and home to some of the better looking Peruvian chicks I’ve ever seen. Most travelers skip through this town in a couple of days, but you can meet some amazing women here if you put in a couple of weeks. This city also boasts some enjoyable tourism activities and lovely scenery. Not a bad spot to hang out for a few weeks and get off the “gringo trail” for a bit. Focusing on quality is a good choice in Arequipa, as the city is under 1 million people and word could get around about who you’re sexing each night.
Cusco is a fantastic city and by far my favorite in Peru. If you’re an absolute newbie to the travel game and want to go to Latin America, I’d recommend you start your travels here. Cusco just had a great energy to it that’s hard to describe. There’s a lot of sun, there’s a lot to do from a tourism aspect, and the nightlife is good. You won’t meet the hottest Peruvian women in Cusco, but they are easy.
You also have tourists from all over the world in Cusco – new people every single week. There are some hot European girls in Cusco – I promise. Cusco is cheap as hell, too. I found a hotel right next to the nightlife that was spectacular for $11 USD a night, and I could bring girls back. That’s hard to beat. If you visit Peru, you’ll end up in Cusco on your way to Machu Pichu. I recommend you stay for a week or two after Machu Pichu and enjoy this magical city.
Oh, Mancora. I had high hopes for this beach town in Peru, and they were not upheld. Mancora is a shithole. I wasn’t a fan. There is only one surf point in all of Mancora. It’s consistently crowded. The beach is brown. The Peruvian chicks are, too. I wouldn’t plan to spend more than a few days in this town. The upside is that you’ll be able to meet some sexy girls if you go in high season, but you’ll also find prices skyrocketing during these time.
If you’re a younger guy – there is an amazing Loki Hostel here. Try to travel with a friend and get a private room. They’re only $30 USD a night and have three excellent beds and a private bath (and usually a balcony overlooking the ocean). You can meet Peruvian girls, Chilean girls, Brazilian girls, and Argentinian girls at this hostel.
Not a place I would spend a lot of time, but you can find some hot chicks in this city. I had the misfortune of spending a few days here, and I met one of the better looking girls I had during my time in Peru. The city itself is pretty boring, but if you want to meet some cute Peruvian girls, then it’s not bad. The weather isn’t bad, and there are beaches nearby. Spend 2-5 days and then get out of this shithole. If you meet a girl you like – take her to a nearby beach with you and chill out there. You’ll go crazy spending too much time in Piura.
My disdain for Trujillo is high. The city is just a pretty boring place. The women aren’t that attractive. The nightlife is not very good. Being the third largest town in Peru – I figured there would be a lot of sexy Peruvian women here. I was wrong. Even though there is a beach nearby (Huanchaco) – you won’t want to spend more than a week here. The good news is no other gringo does, either. So you will have some decent value here. If you happen to meet a girl you like here – you could take her out to the beach for a few days in Huanchaco. Both Trujillo and Huanchaco are very, very cheap.
Unless you’re going to Iquitos for the Ayahuasca – I wouldn’t make the effort to visit the city. I didn’t go, but from what I’ve heard it’s only worth a visit if you want to enjoy an Ayahuasca ceremony. The girls in Iquitos are said to be slutty, and there are a few decent looking Peruvian women in this town, but it’s also a bit dangerous and smaller. You’d be better off chasing the backpacker chicks in this city than the locals. If you do check it out – I’d love to hear about it.
The Best Cities in Peru
Overall, I found Peru to be an average country. The climate is fairly pleasant (can be cold), but not Mediterranean or tropical. The Peruvian girls I met were fun, caring girls, but they’re not the hottest. Peru is a great destination for guys just starting to travel. Peru will not win the heart of a seasoned traveler. Check Peru out before you venture onto greener pastures. Spend a decent amount of time in Lima and Cusco (maybe Arequipa) and then breeze through the rest of the county. Good luck, gents.
P.S. If you want to meet some cute chicks in Lima and make a little love – Latin American Cupid is a great place to start. If you only have a short time in Peru, I definitely recommend you sign up for Latin American Cupid and start talking with a few cute Peruvians. The site costs a few bucks, but it’s well worth it in Lima.
