With beautiful beaches, great surf and ancient traditions, Peru‘s Huanchaco is fantastic little beach town just outside of Trujillo. A stop-off here means sea, sunshine and sand, as well as seeing fishermen surf into shore with their caballitos de totora, a tradition that pre-dates the Incas. Here’s our guide to the best hostels in town.
This hostel is located outside of a little plaza, about two blocks from the beach. The accommodation is pleasant, as is the building. It’s a quaint spot, offering a pool, and is a good location for families.
