  • All city of Peru have your Plaza de Armas and this that is worth a lot of colonial walking by her, watching the houses, the array and the everyday life of the local people. From it, you get to several tourist attractions located in the Center

  • It is nice to walk at night, especially among people and their stories. The plaza de armas of Trujillo is very special place since it combines a series of situations such as the traditional families of this area of the Peru walking as well as tourists, photographers and one that another group of motorcyclists or friends gathered around a monument to It has witnessed for more than 400 years of these and many more stories. Late at night is still interesting, but that's another story...

  • Excellent stay. People friendly and helpful. I will return in the near future.
  • The newly renovated plaza is soon ready for the arrival of the Papa.
  • Seems nice, but the whole central section is under construction and isn’t visible.
  • So helpful.
  • Very big and impressive plaza, also very noisy because of the cars around

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.
