  • Lovely place for a small walk around the pier and the Malecon. Nice restaurants and decent prices. Good for families.  more »
  • Passing through Chiclayo, we went to this beach, entering the dock is awesome... people visit it and until done fishing at this place, a little careless Beach, despite not being season, despite everything, a beautiful place full of history.

  • the local Health Department warns against entering the beach or swimming in the sea. When we were there the beach Zululand with trash stank pathetic. The restaurants on the beach are also extremely expensive; the intrusive "turn on" the waiter to lure tourists in the restaurant doesn't make the thing better. Pimentel was a disappointment, who want Beach etc. better off Mancora in Trujillo.

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.
