Tumbes is the capital of the Department of the same name in the Region Grau.

Get in

National buses run along the Panamerican Highway from Lima to Tumbes & some to the frontier with Ecuador.

Get around

There are kombis to beach resorts, & colectivos to the frontier. Customs & immigration are several kilometres inside Peru & Ecuador so make sure it is understood that colectivo/kombi/taxis wait while formalities are concluded, & they do not drive off with your belongings on any unexpected diversions. International buses are a safer means of crossing the frontier. Beware of false currency exchange.


White sand beaches, mangroves, Tumbes River & National Parks like Amotape.






Get out

  • Ormeño[1](Lima to Guayaquil daily & Quito weekly), CIFA (Tumbes to Machala & Guayaquil) & Transportes Loja (Piura to Machala), have international buses to Ecuador.

National buses run along the Panamerican Highway to/from Lima from Tumbes & some from/to the frontier with Ecuador.
