Church Tourist Spot
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.

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.
