Nestled along the warm shores of the Pacific Ocean and bursting with history, charm, color and vibrancy, Trujillo, Peru is a one-of-a-kind destination.

Find the sites below - a mere sampling - within mere minutes of our Wyndham Costa del Sol Trujillo hotel, where we invite you to start your journey.


Arts & Cultural

Cathedral Museum
Located inside the Catedral de Trujillo, this museum allows visitors the opportunity to marvel at carvings, artifacts and paintings from the colonial period, including iconic artwork representations of The Denial of Saint Peter ("La Negación de San Pedro"), originally painted by Caravaggio, and the portrait of Saint John the Baptist (San Juan Bautista).

El Brujo Museum and Archaeological Complex
A multi-faceted and fascinating cultural adventure beckons at this complex, one that is slowly gaining popularity for its fascinating glimpse into pre-Inca times, and the rich history of the Mocha and Chimú peoples. Located about one hour from our Trujillo hotel, the site includes what remains of a pyramid constructed 1,300 years ago, as well as its star attraction: The Senora de Cao, a female mummy in pristine condition, and one of the best-ever relics adorned by ornate jewelry and stunning tattoos. So worth the one- hour drive, and an out-of-this-world experience.

Museo del Juguete (Toy Museum)
At this charming museum, visitors can embark upon the journey of toy-making from pre-Hispanic times up until the 1950's, as well as explore a vast collection of toys, graciously donated by people from around the world.

Museum of Zoology
While taxidermy may not appeal to all tastes, the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Peru's native wildlife is offered at this small, yet captivating museum. Find Peru's bounty of wildlife - including birds, reptiles, fish, insects and mammals - displayed in thought-provoking fashion just minutes from our Trujillo hotel.


Points of Interest

Casa Urquiaga
This stunning neoclassical house - also known as Casa Calonge - was once the residence of Simón Bolivar, and is a popular site both for its location opposite the Plaza Mayor, and for its beauty. With elaborate interiors, an extensive collection of Moche and Nasca ceramics, Chimú gold ornaments and scenic courtyards, the picturesque mansion is now the headquarters of the Central Reserve Bank.

Catedral de Trujillo (Trujillo Cathedral)
Located in Trujillo's beautiful historical center, this cathedral - officially the Catedral Basílica Santa María - overlooks one of the most elegant main squares in all of Peru, dates back to the early 1600's, and is renowned both for its stunning works of art and its status as one of the oldest Catholic structures in Peru.

Chan Chan
Just a short drive from our Trujillo hotel, this awe-inspiring archaeological site was once the largest city in the Americas and the largest adobe city on the planet. With tens of thousands of structures, some with walls extending 30 feet in height, along with miles and miles of passageways and streets, this former capital of the Chimú civilization - dating back to 850 A.D. - is well worth the trip and is truly incomparable.

Huaca del Sol y de la Luna (Temple of the Sun and Temple of the Moon)
Dating back over 1,500 years ago, these pyramid structures are thought to be the largest pre-Columbian adobe structures in all of Peru. The Huaca del Sol, originally made from millions of adobe bricks measures over 140 feet in height, while the Huaca de la Luna is better preserved, allowing visitors to see the power of the Moche peoples in awe-inspiring, astounding and breathtaking detail.

Huanchaco Beach
Boasting incredible surfing, alluring beaches, mind-boggling history, and renowned for its unbelievably delicious ceviche and charming "caballitos de totora" - reed watercrafts used by Peruvian fishermen for the past 3,000 years - this mellow, casual waterfront nirvana calls to one and all. And the best part is that it is a mere 15-minute drive from our Trujillo hotel, so pack your sunscreen and swimsuit and prepare for a divine day basking in the Peruvian sunshine.

Plaza de Armas de Trujillo
As the historic site where Marqués de Torre Tagle declared Trujillo's independence from Spanish rule, this elegant square is the heart and soul of Trujillo and is both a wonderful place to gaze upon the beautiful fountains, statues and Trujillo's most important buildings, as well as attending the myriad of significant cultural events, including the very apt Peruvian Independence Day.
