dont stay at casa suiza in huanchaco« on: May 14 2007 05:05:00 »
Just to say i stayed at hotel casa suiza in huanchaco in the north of peru and i had my stuff stolen from the workers there. There was no guest and the worker even tryed to blame the other worker, got the police involved and they just it is common for guest to have their stuff stolen because the owners are thiefs.

WWhy go to surf Huancacho anyway? Go to Pacamayo, or Chicama, qu8ality left handers. But even there you have to keep an eye out for your stuff.
Pakatnamu in Pacasmayo is a safe hotel

I was actually looking at this place as a possibility in July, so thanks for the heads-up. Do you have any other positive or negative experiences/recommendations with the area? peace.

Hi bob, just to say that time of year is great to visit the area of pacasmayo and chicam if the swell is big,you have chan chan near by and some cities to visit. The water will be cold, so a fullsiut and boots needed mate. Also to say its best not to travel by taxi at night, its common even for local to get robbed by taxi drivers , but if your carefull you might get some of the best waves of your life. Good luck.

Dont listen to this t boy, there is no need to stay in lima if you want surf,if your around that area go to punta hermosa and to say use taxis is stupid, because they are the ones you have to watch out for. Plus the beaches around lima are polluted and crap. If you go to peru head north for the best waves.
T boy if your not a surfer dont leave messages on this site to give false info.

What are yu talking about? if you mean to surf at shitty places like makaha or costa verde ( may be this is where you went) yuo are right but there are good and solid spots like punat rocas, try to be a competitive surfer and don`t complain as a girl! Also in mancora you`ll find local surfers.
About the incident in that hotel, you should go to the turist police not to the regular police station, or call to the tourist centre, they will assist you aanywhere in Peru.

Whoa, bob and others! this is bob too. I appreciate everyone's opinion as I try to understand all that Peru offers. But I hope this doesn't become a "pissing" contest about which breaks suck, etc. I like that the posters here care that much, though. Peace.
