We arrived safely. It's a little poorer here to what we've been used to. It's also reflected in the prices of things.
We caught a taxi from the bus station in Trujillo to Huanchaco. The taxi driver charged us S25, when it shouldve been S18, but i couldnt be bothered to barter over £2, I let him have his gringo price, besides we had surfboards too. he drove so fast, 95km in a 35km zone, but we got to our hostel in one piece. Ha. We drove past some old inca ruins that we may explore on a flat day here.
My friend hostel is where we are now. It's a cute hostel run by a family - grandma, aunties, sons, daughters. It is also super super cheap. It's about S17 per night for a private room/baño. We've booked a week but could easily stay longer. There's a little restaurant down stairs that has cheap and delicious food. The waves are just at the end of the street, mainly lefts but also rights. The surf hasn't been too big either, which is good for me. All in all this has been the best place so far (for waves). The beach isn't the nicest, but at least it's sand. There are sea urchins everywhere so we have to be careful when paddling out. You really need a 3/2 wetsuit here, but I'm getting away with a 2mm wetsuit top, and Sams just wearing boardies. I must admit I'm chilled to the bone when I get out though. Haha
