Last week we visited the seaside resort of Huanchaco, in the North of Peru. Huanchaco is a great little beach town, quiet, laidback and picturesque. The climate in the North of Peru is beautiful year round, and there is great surf on the Pacific Coast.
We took a walk down the malecon (boardwalk) and had lunch overlooking the ocean – after all, during our entire visit to Trujillo we were practically living like the Roman Emperor.
From Trujillo you can get to Huanchaco by taxi for about 20 Nuevos Soles (~ $7) or by public transportation, just ask the locals which bus to take. I highly recommend it!
I like your blog and thought you might find one of posts interesting.
Glad you enjoyed your trip to Huanchaco but for other readers do not pay more than 15 soles for the taxi out to Huanchaco or back to Trujillo. The bus is reliable and costs about 1 sol.

Taxi to Huanchaco shouldn’t be more than S/.12. The Huanchaco buses are S/1.20 – S/1.50 and run along America Sur/Manische as well as Avenida Espana.
