Beaches and eternal summer
Piura has streets illuminated by the permanent northern sun of Peru. Tourism in this city based on its spas and beaches are favorites of surfers: Máncora, Colán, Los Órganos, Vichayito, Cabo Blanco (famous for hosting writer Ernest Hemingway) and Lobitos. In this region we can find colonial temples and artisan villages such as Chulucanas and Catacaos. Likewise, you can find miraculous lagoons like Las Huaringas. In Piura lies the most extensive arid territory of Peru: the desert of Sechura. Among its celebrations are the feast of the Captive Lord of Ayabaca and the Easter of Catacaos, characterized by a deep religious devotion.
Its gastronomy is wide and varied. Piura is the land of eternal summer.
Location:: It is located in the north of Peru and, in the northeast, it shares the border with Ecuador. Most of its territory is on the coast (desert ecosystems and dry forest); and some localities in the sierra (forests of páramo and haze).
