Seas, Surf and Citadels

... Columbian city in South America and the largest adobe (mud brick) city in the world, and was built around 850 before eventually being taken by the Incas in the late 1400s.

Sadly much of the city has been lost, either due to weather or expansion of the towns of Trujillo and Huanchaco (devastating, but happens quite often due to the quantity of ruins in South America). Currently just one palace (albeit a monstrous one) has been mostly recovered and reconstructed, which is open ...

Waves and Ruins

... in a city or near a road. A few hundred years ago, Chan Chan was the largest pre-Columbian city of the continent, adorned with large amounts of gold and silver; something like 60,000 people of the Chimu civilization lived within its mud walls. There is not much left today, thanks to the Spaniards who plundered the city during their conquest of Peru, and thanks to the rain and flooding that have eroded most of the buildings and walls. It's still a pretty awesome place ...

Day 80 - Huanchaco to Mancora

... pretty average, so we head back to Huanchaco, grab a burger for dinner from a beach hut which is overpriced and tiny and watch the sunset whilst surfers glide along the waves. Afterwards on our walk back to the hostel we grabbed another burger for ourselves, this time both burgers were cheaper than the price of just one from the first place, and much tastier! I'm loving the South American burgers though - they are served on ...

Big ocean waves in Huanchaco

... 34, 34); font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13.333333969116211px; line-height: normal;">On Wednesday, we took a bus from Chiclayo to a beach town called Huanchaco. It is a great surfing town because the waves are extremely huge. When we arrived at Hospedaje Oceano, we made some popcorn for a snack. For dinner, we ate at a really nice restaurant called My Friend. Even though this is a huge fishing town, vegetarian can choose a variety of foods ...

... and went back to the hostel.

The next morning, we got up, packed our stuff up, as we had to check out of the hostel today. We are catching our night bus at 10pm, so we're going to store our things there for the day, while we go out and kill time until the night bus. Once we'd packed up and stored the bags, we went to Otra Cosa for our breakfast and we happened to bump into an Australian couple that we'd spoke to on the way to the Galapagos, it's such a small ...

    Whilst visiting Trujillo and Huanchaco I opted to stay in the latter, at Casa De Reposo El Boqueron, Av. Ricardo Palma 330 (between Sanchez and Barrenechea), Tel: (044) 461968, Email: maznaran@hotmail.com. This small, secure and comfortable friendly run Hospedaje was excellent value for money at only 10 soles per person per night. The six rooms all with communal bathroom (three bathrooms) are of a good size - offering decent beds, cable TV (with over ninety channels) and free WI-FI. There is a lounge and kitchen area for guests use, as well as free use of the washing machine. The pleasant owner Maria is extremely welcoming and lived in France for over thirty years. Two of the rooms offer one double bed and the other four have two single beds - but these do have enough space to squeeze in a third if required. Located at north end of town, this is a more relaxing, quieter place to stay than some of the other Hostals/Hospedaje in Huanchaco. If you're looking for a party Hostal/Hospedaje with a bar, then look elsewhere.
