Huanchaco, Peru

FEBRUARY, MARCH & APRIL 2018

Surf

Uber-consistent and fun waves that’ll satisfy every level of surfer. Chicama (the world’s longest left) and other world-class spots are nearby. The down-to-earth surf culture makes for constant fun in and out of the water.

Lifestyle

Juicy mangos are as consistent as great waves. Solid internet, excellent pizzas, walk to everything, ocean-promenade with Peruvian street food, markets with lots fresh produce, all the modern conveniences but with Peruvian flare.

Adventure

Desert and never-ending beaches fringe the coast. Lush valleys, rolling hills and massive mountains are a short trip away. Try sandboarding, trekking, windsurfing or visit eco-lodges in the jungle.

Culture

Sunset oceanside with a beer and mouth-watering ceviche, learn Spanish, explore the ancient ruins of the Moche people, skateboard with the local kids, catch a live cumbia band or explore the colonial-style centre of nearby Trujillo.

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.
