  • Research work, carried out with dedication and effort has achieved a relevant discovery in the North of our country, with the aim of seeking the essence of our ancestors through various mechanisms, techniques and technologies that allowed such fines, although still a long way to analyze. Excellent and recommended!

Where to stay in Trujillo

Trujillo offers surprisingly few sleeping options for a city of its size, featuring only a few mid-range hotels suitable for the majority of visitors. If all you need is a decent bed in a quiet part of town, look for hostels catering to budget travelers. Visitors who don't need to stay in Trujillo itself can also consider the nearby beach town of Huanchaco, which offers more choices at a range of prices.
