Enjoy traveling with your children in the north of Peru: Trujillo


When we have children, the way we travel changes completely: we begin to worry more about having everything organized and because of that we might discover places that maybe were not intended.

If you are thinking of traveling to Trujillo with your children, here we leave you some entertaining places to enjoy with the little ones of the house! You will be surprised of how much fun can it be.


Toy Museum

Over the years, the way children have fun has changed greatly. What do your children know about the toys of our ancestors? In this museum they will be surprised with toys that come from ancient cultures, such as moche, chimú and chancay, to others from the mid-twentieth century.


Citadel of Chan Chan

The Citadel of Chan Chan is impressive for anyone, no matter how old they are. Your children will have a great time walking through its labyrinthine streets and, in addition, they will be able to learn in an entertaining way the fascinating history of the Chimu culture, which lived here more than 1150 years ago.



The totora horses of Huanchaco

If your children love adventure, you have to take them to Huanchaco! The best-known beach in Trujillo, located just 15 minutes away from the city center, draws the attention of nationals and foreigners for its famous totora horses, which you can rent to take a ride on the Pacific waters. It will be an unforgettable moment for your children!




If you are thinking about a few calmer days, in which to enjoy the sea and the sun, Trujillo is the perfect place! Near the city you will find plenty of beaches to spend a few days of relaxation and where your children will have a great time playing between the waves and the sand. It sounds good, does not it?



Nougat from Trujillo

All the children die for a piece of candy! One of the most representative desserts of Trujillo is the nougat, so your children will be happy to take a tour of the best-known shops in the city and try the variety of nougat you will find here. They are so finger-licking good!


As you can see, Trujillo is a perfect destination to enjoy a family vacation. If you are thinking about visiting the City of Eternal Spring, you have to come to our Tierra Viva Trujillo Hotel! Visit our website and make your reservation here.
