Trujillo is a large metropolis in the northern coast of Peru. I actually stayed in a smaller town of Huanchaca, which is a lovely town about 15 minutes from Trujillo.
One of the days, I took a minibus tour to several sites in the area. Our first stop was at the massive adobe-walled city of Chan Chan. Afterwards, we visited the Moche Pyramids, Huaca el Sol and Huaca la Luna. The last archeological site we saw that day was Huanco el Dragon, a lovely adobe temple, which has interesting crafted dragons and rainbows on its walls. (hence why the locals call this site Huanco Arco Iris). Oh, on the archeological sites, one can see the ugliest dogs on Earth, the Peruvian bread of hairless dogs known as Chinos by the locals.
- Pros:Chan Chan, Huanca el Dragon, Huaca el Sol and Huaca la Luna.
- Cons:Huge metropolis, stay at Huanchaca
- In a nutshell:Great place for sight-seeing and relaxing in the northern coast of Peru
