Hotel Playa Huanchaco
Occupying a beachfront location in Huanchaco's northern neighborhood of El Boqueron, the Hotel Playa Huanchaco features air-conditioned accommodations and complimentary use of a private parking garage. This modern establishment has single, twin and double rooms, as well as suites.
Each guest space offers shoreline views and is outfitted with tile flooring, red accent walls, private bathrooms, LCD-screen televisions with cable programming, and access to high-speed wireless Internet. The front desk is operational 24-hours a day and is located in the lobby. Next to here is a small Internet kiosk where guests can make use of the hotel's two PCs.
Other services provided by the hotel include transportation to and from the airport, flight confirmation, currency exchange, and an area shuttle to different tourist attractions. Tours in and around town, to the region's archeological sites, and out to sea can be arranged through the front desk.
This city's beachfront resorts make it the most frequented local in the Trujillo province. Its breathtaking beaches and crashing waves are home each year to the International Longboard Surfing Championship. Many small businesses offer surfing lessons and rent out equipment throughout the year.
The Huanchaco Pier is a main point of interest in this area, and is just a few blocks from the hotel. This steel structure extends over 350 feet into the Pacific Ocean. From here, visitors can enjoy views of the typical reed watercrafts of this region carrying fishermen across the bay. These boats were already used by the ancient Chimú tribe for fishing and transportation. The same caballitos de totora can be seen depicted in ceramic fragments dated as early as 500 BC.
The Santuario de la Virgen del Socorro Church—said to be the second oldest church in all of Peru—is not to be missed. A short walk from the pier, its gorgeous belfry and unique architecture is sure to delight all who visit.
A variety of specialty restaurants can also be found in this area. Club Colonial is a Belgian-run restaurant situated in a traditional mansion that serves both Peruvian and French cuisine by candle-light. A delectable crab lasagna and fresh-baked pizzas can both be enjoyed at Mamma Mía. Located directly next to the hotel is the popular Big Ben Restaurant, where top-notch seafood and ceviches unique to the region can be sampled.
Food & Beverage
The hotel's restaurant prepares à la carte regional cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Peruvian cocktails can be ordered from the on-site bar. Directly next door to the hotel is the locally well-known seafood restaurant, Big Ben.
