Landmark Tourist Spot
Rest and relax at Plaza de Armas, Chiclayo's main square and meeting point. Situated in the heart of the city, the lively green park is overlooked by an imposing white cathedral, dating back to the 1860s. Hang out on one of the benches, enjoy the sounds of the water fountain, or do some shopping. The square also contains a tourist information booth used by several tour agencies to offer guided trips. Have a meal or refreshing drink at one of the restaurants overlooking the square, and enjoy the view of the small park and the town hall.

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.
