Huanchaco Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 16 photos

Surfing is in the Air and is all over Huanchaco

I visited Trujillo on my way down from Mancora to Lima for one day. My aunt pointed the sky was not blue as it usually was. But to me it was beautiful.
Huanchaco is beach town that is mostly known as if it was in Trujillo because of its closeness.

Visite por un dia Trujillo en camino a Lima viniendo de Mancora. Mi tia nos hizo notar q el cielo no estaba azul como usualmente esta por lo tanto no tan lindo como casi siempre en verano.

Huanchaco es la ciudad playa mas cercana a Trujillo y casi todos la conocen como si estuviera en Trujillo.

My daughters told me that the Waves are the best they had experienced so far. (at least North Carolina, Virginia, Florida) One can experience waves on every way, shape, form , intensity , etc.

Unfortunatelly we had very little time and our rest-stop over from Mancora became a full day of Sports and fun. We enjoy to visit tia Edith and family.
