Caraz Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 41 photos

Caraz is a small town on the way from Chimbote to Huaraz , just after passing the cañon del Pato.

Compared to Huaraz, Caraz is much less touristic and is still worthwile : people wear the most impressive and diversified traditionnal clothing I have seen in Peru, and it is a better place to do day trekking to the following places, among others : Laguna Paron (Must See), Puyas de Winchus and Laguna 69 (Travelogues).

Spend 3 days here before heading to Huaraz!
