  • There are by see much... place that not is can let of know to the be in Trujillo. I would not recommend going with little children, because there is very pos up and down and fenced with ropes, a small child... slopes easily crosses it is an accident. If you arrive in the afternoon, then wear something warm because it starts to feel quite cold... and while alla Sun... burn!
