    You can appreciate the Moche pyramids and see the excavations to date. There are also replicas of the tombs and original jewelry. Very nice.

    Beautiful and interesting place of the Moche culture. Don't miss it! Leven sunglasses, hat and sunscreen, because although it is almost always cloud the sun rises and is very strong. Enjoy!

    Unlike the Royal Tombs Museum allows photos, it is much smaller and simple but it complements well with the above mentioned Museum.

Where to stay in Chiclayo

The city center, northwest of the airport, provides comfortable rooms in modern hotels located both on side streets and attractive boulevards. A few older establishments, colonial-Spanish in appearance, occupy some of the nicest spots in the downtown area. Consider looking in the residential areas for rental properties and family-run guesthouses--both represent good options for budget-conscious travelers and those on a longer stay.
