In Huanchaco, the question is more: what can not be done? Many vacationers come here to try on a surfboard for the first time. There are some surf schools along the water where you can learn to surf or kite surf. The waves are not too high (but not too low), so Huanchaco is considered an optimal place for beginners and advanced surfers.
Even amateur photographers get their money in Huanchaco, because there are about a million opportunities to take out the camera. Particularly popular: the Cartoons of Tortora, the small boats of the sea, in which members of the Moche culture sailed along the coast 2000 years ago to fish. They look, and are called, like little horses. By the way, you can not only take pictures of the boats, but for a few dollars you can also take a short tour of the bay with them.
Strolling through the Market, the local market, offers information about the colorful life of the locals, as well as a visit to “El Muelle”, the pier more than 100 meters long and more than 100 years old.
And, of course, you can drive to Trujillo at any time and from there take a tour of the famous ruins of the area.
