La Libertad Holiday

Coast, highlands and rainforest meet in this Peruvian region, where the Andes stretch toward the Pacific and ancient Moche cities remain unchanged. Explore the spectacular trifecta of terrain in La Libertad, a northwestern Peruvian region that combines the undulating Andean highlands with the Pacific Coast and “selva” rainforest. The region’s long history is apparent in its deeply rooted traditions and ancient temples. Stay in cosy fishing villages, explore fertile valleys and check the surf as it rolls in along the region’s renowned beaches.

Trujillo , the region’s capital, sits at the spot where the Andes come closest to the sea. This elegant city is scattered with colonial landmarks and architectural charms. Walk through its colonial centre and enjoy local seafood dishes, such as ceviche. Explore outside of the city to reach La Libertad’s magnificent archaeological wonders. Huaca de la Luna y Sol is a breathtaking complex of temples and murals created by the ancient Moche civilization. More pre-Incan relics can be found among the Chan Chan and El Brujo ruins, where breathtaking vistas stretch from the Andes to the coast.

Experience La Libertad’s long-held seaside customs in Huanchaco , a laid-back little town to the north of Trujillo. Famed for its traditional fishing culture and great surf, Huanchaco is an idyllic seaside alternative to the region’s capital. Spy fishermen surfing on neatly crafted reed boats, known as “caballitos de totora.” These age-old vessels uphold the same traditions you might have seen depicted on 2,000-year-old Moche ceramics. Rise with the sun and spend the morning carving up the town’s surf breaks or laze away an afternoon dining on the day’s catch.

In Huamachuco, you can see pretty colonial architecture against a backdrop of the Andean Plateau and see the archaeological wonders of Marcahuamachuco.

Trujillo has an international airport, as well as a cruise terminal located in nearby Salaverry. Explore La Libertad via local buses and taxis. Visit between April and June for warmer and drier weather conditions.

Visit in late January to experience the Marinera festival, which celebrates the national dance of Peru. In September, you can join the festivities of the Spring Festival, which features dancing, paso horse shows and cultural events. Watch fascinating Easter religious processions for Le Semana de Pascua.
