Very poor breakfast cold toast and some rude staff in the restaurant however we was not there long and the bed was comfortable.
As mentioned in many reviews it is very noisier staying there with the constant beeping of traffic.

The overnight buses in Peru are surprisingly comfortable. They're not cheap by Peruvuan stabdards for the 'tourist bus' but it's worth it for a vague attempt at sleep. The seats recline, there's a movie till a sensible hour and you even get food - it's kinda like taking a flight from melbourne to perth (& back). For an 8hr journey you pay around $30aus.

Getting to Huanchaco was a real comedy of errors. At the time it was pretty frustrating but now it's actually quite funny and it brings us to this lovely little beach spot a little earlier than expected. Our 4 day trek was great but half the group had booked a 3 day trek and so we rushed the third day to camp in the town. We camped in someone's farm backyard, where every animal was on heat and doing it. I now know what a duck penis looks like. We sat around on ...
... responsability. Not that this is uncommon in developing countries, but its still sad to see such a contrast from one morning to the next. We walked to the very end of the beach to swim that day. The next day we caught a bus to Mancora, further up the coast, where the beaches are much nicer. We were going to go inland to Chachapoyas to see more ruins and do some trekking but the roads are unsafe in the wet season and we reluctantly decided to give it a ...
