You cannot miss the opportunity to see the Huaca del Sol y de la Luna which is 8 km south of the city and the Chan Chan citadel, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. For those who want to enjoy the beach, the Huanchaco resort waits for you with its famous "totora horses", traditional rafts, and perfect waves for surf lovers. 

When to go Trujillo?
