Huanchaco It´s a nice beach situated in Trujillo, Perú. Huanchaco is a special place. It is a beach where the past and the present come together. Surfers share waves with fishermen riding caballitos de totora, reed rafts used on the northern Peruvian coast for at least two thousand years.
And oh, the ceviche! The entire malecón is lined by seafood restaurants, and I can’t remember having had a bad meal in any of them. The local specialty is crab, but all of the classic Peruvian seafood dishes, from choritos a la chalaca to parihuela to tiradito, are available here. For dessert, I recommend one of the ubiquitous cremoladas and a walk along the beach.
