Swingers Crazy Golf

In the UK, January has to be one of the worst months of the year. After the 6th, nothing is festive anymore and the days are dark and cold most of the time with not a fairy light in sight. It’s also the month where you have to wait the longest to be paid, so it’s always the time to tighten your belt, so to speak.

However, I think the best way to shake those January blues is to go and find something fun to do. And, let’s be honest, crazy golf (alongside good food and drink) is definitely fun – with a bit of competition thrown in for good measure.

A Year in the Life – 2017

Is it just me or has this year whizzed by in a flash?

As a child, I’m sure the space of time between the summer holidays was a never-ending year of school, but now as an adult that same space of time seems to last a nanosecond.

District Edit – The Southern Beaches

The beaches south of Lima are the destination over the summer months, and although they have their year round residents, there is a huge influx of Peruvians and tourists from December through to Easter. Some go for the day, others the weekend, and for some children their entire summer holiday.

However, it’s not just the beaches that draw in the crowds, there are plenty of delicious places to eat that will grab your attention too, plus a location or two to dance away until the wee hours. There are obviously more venues than I am putting in this guide, but these are the spots that keep me coming back for more year after year. Plus, I used to live in Punta Hermosa, which means I’ve definitely had time to try a number of locations and really narrow them down to my absolute faves.

The southern beaches are actually made up of many districts, however due to the small number of places I’ve chosen, I decided to group them all together under one umbrella. As always, I’ve put together a handy Google map to help you find them all! Here is the link: https://www.google.com/maps/placelists/list/1K1RDNfbvI3vMlqEXTfI6iZyCIWQ

I’ve gone as far down the coast as Asia, as it is one of the main destinations for holidaymakers during the summer months. I’ve also placed the towns and locations in order as they appear on the map. Continue reading
