  • This museum is located in the heart of the old Trujillo. Museography is a bit dusty and based essentially on panels to read. That said, these elements provide a good basis to understand sites that surround Trujillo, as long as you did not visit museums more complete and more explicit beforehand, as for example the Larco Museum in Lima. For the Huaca, it is better to go to the Museum near the site.

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.
