Trujillo

Trujillo

Trujillo, the capital of the region, is known as ”the city of eternal spring" because of its blessed climate and festive atmosphere. The city has many lovely mansions and fine example of colonial architecture.

The Huanchaco beach resort is only fifteen minutes away from the city. It is famous for the caballitos de totora. Which are lightweight boats made of totora reeds that have been used to cut through the ocean since the time of the Mochicas and Chimús. Here, you can enjoy exquisite seafood or simply bask in the glory of a day at the beach.
