Admire Catedral de Tumbes, a modern church in the heart of Tumbes built on the site of an old colonial building, which stands out as the city's tallest building. The cathedral was originally built in the 17th century in Baroque style, before being rebuilt in 1985. Head inside to see the intricately carved Baroque altar. Once inside, pay special attention to the ornate stained glass panels, which portray scenes from the life of Jesus Christ.

  • It is a place of regular size, very clean, surrounded by banks and restaurants. Don't forget fotografear to the Sonso Mata hanging from the trees. The evening is filled with street vendors of pop corn and all kinds of snacks and drinks, children play with their carts and other, there is music and a man who sells balloons of many colors. An atmosphere of joy and tranquility of yesteryear feel.

  • It is nice but nothing spectacular. A nice walk is going to know it and walk around the square and its surroundings.

Where to stay in Tumbes

High-rise hotels in the city center offer basic rooms and few additional facilities. If you're going to spend a while in the area, consider accommodations farther along the coast. Take the coastal road west out of town to find pleasant seaside resorts and hotels with extensive views of the Pacific.
