looks unreal

I May be heading there at the end of the summer.

Do you think It would be better at the end of August or September?

Did you book through a company or simply book the hotel, had them arrange airport transfers and buy tickets?

thanks

Nat

no need for a travel agency but also fine to do so.
best fly from Lima to trujillo then set out from there.
The drive northfrom Lima through way-cool country takes about 12 hours.
aug and sept similar; go on large swell if posib westerly component even better.

No I booked the flights myself. When I booked rooms at the Delfines hotel, Lucho the manager lined me up with a driver to pick me up from Trujillo and take me to the hotel. Super easy. I wouldn't rent a car. Better to have someone who knows get you there safe n sound.


surf and enjoy

Huanchanco to the south. Really fun town with a good food and a fun left point as well.

I did. One day was smaller at Chicama so we went south and got really fun overhead waves at Huanchanco. Great ceviche as well. I dont think id go to Peru for just that wave. I would like to see Pacasmayo next time I go to chicama.

pacasmayo is crazy long. we surfed it barley breaking a bit OH and the rides were hundreds and hundreds of yards long. the wave starts to slow down and get fatter and then it just starts up again and reels off for another 75 yards. another good fish wave.

Would you stay by chicama again and if it's small then head off to another wave for the day? or would you stay by another waves such as pacasmayo and if its big go to chicama?

My buddies are pushing to stay elsewhere and drive to chicama conditions depending. and I'm pushing to stay at chicama and drive elsewhere if it's smaller.

Also how easy is it to get around? can you hire a guide for the day or rent a car if needed?

I would fully stay at Chicama again in a heartbeat. I liked the town and the lack of people. It's also in the middle of a few left points with huanchanco one-hour south and pacasmayo an hour to the north.

Many people prefer to drop into chicama when the swell gets huge everywhere else. So that works as well. It's easy to arrange a car and driver to take you on day trips from Chicama to the other points and Im sure vice-versa. I wouldn't rent a car. No need and the roads are confusing as hell getting into chicama. Its like a full backroad TJ experience.
