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 !
During your trip to Northern Peru, you have to visit :
The region of Lambayeque is very well known for its King Kongs – pronounced King Konas – a creamy pastry with several layers, very sweet. Peruvians are crazy about.
Another speciality : the Peruvian Ceviche, fresh and spicy !
