The Northern Peruvian village of Huanchaco; a laid-back surf town that comes alive on the weekends. Along the beach you can see the Caballitos de Totora, traditional pre-Columbian rafts locally known as”little reed horses”, used by the Huanchaco fishermen as they ride the waves like seafaring Cowboys, back to shore with the day’s catch. We quickly settled in this quiet fishing village, spending our days sleeping in, lounging in the rooftop hammock, eating fresh Ceviche every day for lunch, and strolling the beachfront at sunset.When in Peru, head to Huanchaco for some sun, surf and ceviche.
