Trujillo

Historic city & world class beach

Huanchaco

Founded in 1534, Trujillo was the first Peruvian city to declare independence from Spain. Long before the Spanish arrived, the area was the center of the Moche & Chimú cultures.

The city has just over a million inhabitants and has everything a Peruvian city should: historic Plaza de Armas, beautiful cathedral, numerous museums and archeological sites. However, what usually draws international tourists is the surfing.

Beach

The Huanchaco beach is on the north side of the city of Trujillo and one of the most famous beaches in Peru for surfing and the best spot to see surfboards made of totora reeds, called “caballito de totora.” The Chimú artifact below from around 1100 CE is currently in a museum in Munich. (Yes, that’s a monkey surfing the front of the caballito).
