  • Really nice place to visit, it's right next to the beach, it has an interesting museum and weird skeletons. Worth the visit. 
  • A lot of local culture. Immediately a great view of the Pacific Ocean, a nice evening to enjoy. The mummies, the stuffed animals, the historical families that populated the region in colonization. An excellent Peruvian wine (rare thing) to make. There's a guy who rents for a 03 minutes an Eagle from the Andes to you take a picture. Is too much

  • There are too many people. It has become a recreational park, if one goes to the restaurant must pay 20 Suns per person entry as if it were to enter the Castle and its attractions. High prices, replete with swimming pool, very false remodeling. However, the mini meals outside the Castle passage is rich. I recommend the slush!

  • Good construction of the Decade of 1920, price accessible S / 15, unfortunately the tour and the attention of the guides was very brief. During the winter I do not recommend the food of the restaurant Silvia nor stay in the Hotel.
