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.

  • The square is a quiet place with great architecture to be able to observe and at night is spectacular, full of life. It is ideal for taking pictures since everything is nice. The square is alive.

  • Chiclayo total was a negative experience. Already in the suburbs it is slain by the waste - in the Centre's not looks better, also not to the central square. The day an incredible noise, honking taxis, plastic bags with trash on every street corner. Really too bad, because earlier this place certainly was once worth a visit.

  • Like any good Spanish city that is respected, the main square of the city is the meeting point at the time that lower the Sun to its around has the Cathedral and the Town Hall and some administrative centers of the city. Currently lights quite recovered quite clean, with lots of green. According to the locals the most eye-catching is your sink that launches three stream of water, and at times was colour simulating the Peruvian flag, but the truth is that I didn't appreciate it.

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.
