Huanchaco

In a historic town on the famous "Moche Route" tourist circuit, vacations in Huanchaco tend to be as active as they are culturally enriching. The coastal town boasts plenty of historical sites related to the ancient culture that once flourished here, as well as a range of museums of showcasing indigenous art. In more recent times, Huanchaco has gained a large following of international surfers, drawn by great surf breaks and pleasant beaches. Said to be the birthplace of ceviche, the town still retains a rustic charm, with wooden fishing boats bobbing along the coast and plenty of atmospheric places serving traditional dishes. Huanchaco is in La Libertad Region. Add Huanchaco and other destinations to your itinerary using our Peru trip planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
