An October 1993 trip
to Trujillo by lisac
Quote: Trujillo is a truly colonial city on the northern coast of Peru, and known as the City of Eternal Spring. It is not often visited and thus off the beaten track, as are many locations around it.
This is a family owned and run restaurant, serving typical seafood dishes from the coast of Peru. Ceviche is the most well-known dish: fresh fish marinated in lime juice and garlic, served on finely chopped onions over a bed of lettuce, with yucca, sweet potato and corn on the cob on the side.
They also serve a seafood soup called "Parihuela", full of delicacies from the sea.
Lunch is the best time to go, while the sun is still warm and there is activity. This is also the time for the main meal of the day in Peru. Evening finds the restaurant with little business and it often closes early.

Public transportation will take you there or a taxi can be hired to take you, wait and return you. There are some occasional cases of robberies occurring here, so be sure to go in daylight and with friends, if possible.
From the top of the huaca you can see the valley stretch out below you, the ocean bordering the desert sands.
