  18. The North Coast of Peru – A desert coast begs to be explored.

    As tourism in Peru expands beyond the obligatory trip to Cuzco, this  often overlooked  desert region  is opening up.

    The company Lindblad Cruises has added stops in Trujillo,  near important archaeological sites like the adobe city of Chan Chan and the Moche pyramid complexes of Sipán and El Brujo, which have opened museums in  recent years.  In town, the Libertador   hotel is set in a Spanish colonial mansion,

    Farther north, you reach the Chaparrí Reserve outside of Chiclayo,  a habitat for highly  threatened Andean spectacle bears. Chaparri Reserve will have a bit of pop-cultural relevance this year with the release of  a Paddington  Bear  film,  built around a member  of the species “from deepest, darkest Peru.

    If you’d prefer nature by day and boutique digs by night, the eco-hotelier  Inkaterra  is  following up   the opening of  the six-room KiCHIC,   in  the low-key  surf village  of Mancora,   by  laying the groundwork  for community- based tourism projects  like sport-fishing  and  whale-watching  charters  at nearby Cabo Blanco, a former Hemingway  fishing  hangout,  while pushing  to establish  a marine reserve and eventually a hotel.

    Besides these  places that  The New York Times  mentions,  you Have Caral, The oldest Civilization of American and The Chavin the Huantar Laberynth  that can be e asuly combinesd  with the North Coast. A trip that begins in Lima and goes up to the North crossing CaralHuaraz and reaching Trujillo and finally Chiclayo. This will be once in a lifetime experience.
