Capital of the region Lambayeque

Chiclayo – Departure point for your trip to Northern Peru !

Chiclayo is the regional capital of Lambayeque, on the Northern coast of Peru. It is also one of the biggest cities of Peru.

Chiclayo itself is not very interesting, but the surroundings are absolutely worth your visit. You have the choice between very good museums, beach at the seaside village of Pimentel (only 13 km away from Chiclayo) or a visit at a nature reserve. The best is of course a little bit of everything !
