  • Is far from attractive and important as those of Lima and Trujillo but is the heart of the city and inevitably full of people at all hours. You don't lose anything if it's out there

  • At this time of the year was full of people, trees decorated Christmas so a little sloppy but good!

  • It isn't all a pleasant place for a walk, I was looking forward to that bus get me out of there. Both times that I had also had several demonstrations.

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.
