Headed down to the Costa Verde today hoping that I could get in after hearing the news about a foot bridge that had been damaged by a truck last night. I knew that Almendrez was closed but I was hoping that I could get to Makaha via another route. I was wrong. The whole Costa Verde area for surfing was completely closed and blocked off by numerous police. It was closed from Chachi Dibous to the north and Bajada Balta was closed in Miraflores. Also the entrance San Martin from San Isidro was closed to the south. So there is no way to get to any of the surfing today other than walking from somewhere on top of the cliffs.
I imagine that Rosa Nautica is going to be loosing a lot of business/money from this today as well. I don't know why the police had to close the entire thing to surfers. I know many people use it to pass through, but not everyone is going all the way through the Costa Verde. It would have been nice to stop and park before this bridge and then walk a shorter distance to the surfing.
Oh well, this is Lima. You can never count on anything other than the authorities doing stupid things and the truck drivers breaking the law.
