Why Huanchaco Peru?
A World surfing Reserve, Huanchaco has the vibe of an easy-going old-friend; the surf is always on and everything is within a short walk.
There’s just the right amount of little restaurants, bars and cafes where you can watch Peruvian beach-goers, and a sprinkling of foreigners, interact with the rhythms of an old fishing village.
The locals care deeply about preserving the integrity of the coastline and the tradition of fishing with reed surf-crafts - which historians now credit as the 5000 year old origin of surfing. Surf with a handful of people from morning til the afternoon or join the friendly gang of locals for a social sunset sesh.
