Trujillo Stories and Tips

Huanchaco

Pacific ocean Photo, Trujillo, Peru

Some 15 kilometers from Trujillo is the small village of Huanchaco. In winter (Peruvian summer), this is a popular beach resort. In summer, it's deserted. The weather in summer is very grey. Little sun, a lot of clouds and fog. But still, it can be very pleasant to breath the ocean air or to have a dive in the cool Pacific waters. If you like surfing, this is a good place. The waves here are very good. In Huanchaco there are a lot of small hostels and restaurants. But a lot of them are closed in summer. In this little fishing village one can get good seafood; one example of a good place to go is Lucha del Mar.
