When most travelers consider Peru as a destination, the first thing that comes to mind are the dizzying heights of the Andes, the ancient mystery of Machu Picchu or the other-worldliness of the Nazca lines. Although dazzling mountains, coastal deserts and deep Amazonian jungle are key features of the country, don’t forget that Peru is also bordered by more than 1,500 miles of Pacific coastline. A beach resort vacation in Peru should be at the top of a traveler’s list. A review of an all inclusive resort, Royal Decameron Punta Sal, may help you book your trip.
The beaches of Punta Sal are the envy of beachgoers everywhere. White sand, rich marine life and tranquil waters are a winning recipe for any beach destination vacation. The appeal of nearby Zorritos cove only adds to the fun in the Peruvian sun at this locale.
Royal Decameron Punta Sal is located in the city of Tumbes. Tumbes, of the Zorritos district of Peru’s southern frontier with neighboring Ecuador, can be reached by air from Lima, the nation’s capital. A ninety-minute flight has travelers touching down at the airport in Tumbes where a one hour car ride delivers them to the luxury of Royal Decameron Punta Sal.
The beach resort has more than half a mile of the most desirable private beachfront in Peru. In addition to including the pleasures of the Pacific, tourists who book with the resort also receive the following amenities:
- Breakfast and lunch buffets
- A la carte dinners
- Snacks and beverages
- Tennis courts
The resort has more than 300 rooms. Superior suites comprise over 40 of these rooms. Twelve bungalows are also available for tourists who prefer a bit more privacy in addition to comfort and luxury. All accommodations feature:
- Air conditioning
- Cable television
- Hot water
- Terrace or balcony
- Hair dryer
The resort offers a wide array of services and facilities. Although many tourists do enjoy the adventure and excitement of touring a city that was once a well populated district of the Incan empire, there are those who would rather remain on the resort property. In such cases, there is still much pleasure to be had by thrillseekers and lovers of relaxation alike:
- 3 restaurants
- 6 nightclubs and bars
- Well equipped gym
- Swimming pool
- Scuba diving
The resort also offers the convenience of money changing services and the security of its own infirmary on the property. For those who are not quite prepared to completely get away from it all, Internet services are also available for a small additional fee.
