After our day in Trujillo, we felt we exhausted that venue (it's quite small) and headed a bit north of town about 30 minutes for the Beach town of Huanchaco. Again, way better than we expected.This once tranquil fishing hamlet, 3-4 miles outside of Trujillo, woke up one morning to find itself a brightly highlighted route on Peru's gringo trail. Managing to retain much of its villagey appeal, Huanchaco has cottoned onto its own popularity and today is happy to dish up a long menu of sleeping and dining options travelers. 
We'd suggest heading there as well as trujillo as a base for touring Trujillos many ruins. or instead of Mancora -  if you want a little more of a social beach scene, more surfing and less bed bugs. Just as good surfing in many's opinion. We walked around town, hung out on the beach and were gluttons on Cervasa and Pisco sours. Mmmmm. We are crossing the finish line. Leaving tonight to Atlanta to visit WOODY, Then on to Beautiful, sunny snowy Denver, Colorado. Snowboarding by Sunday! Brian can't wait to have his beloved Chipotle.
