Our chosen accommodation in the Department of La Libertad is focussed in and around the capital - and Peru's third largest city - Trujillo, whose main attractions are the various nearby pre-Colombian ruins, most notably Chan Chan, the lovely Colonial centre and the coastal location.

You may choose to stay in the heart of the city, or in the nearby beach town of Huanchaco, which has a more laid-back atmosphere. 

La Libertad's Pacific coastline is also home to some of the best waves in Peru - and indeed the world - so we include a couple of properties that cater to surfers and water sports enthusiasts
