Puerto Chicama is a small coastal town in the region of La Libertad, northwestern Peru, 70 kilometers north of Trujillo City. It is an ideal destination for a Peru surf trip. The coastal strip around Chicama set the stage for the rise of many pre-Columbian cultures, such as the pre-Ceramic Huaca Prieta civilization, which is more than 5,000 years old and the Cupisnique, which is more than 3,000 years old, making a surf trip to Chicama a fascinating adventure back in time.
The La Libertad province is also the region where the Andes mountains come closest to the coast, creating a desert coast climate and ensuring moderate temperatures and blue skies almost constantly throughout the year. Water temperatures come in at a cool 18-21 degrees Celsius, so Safari Surf Adventures recommends a three or two millimeters wetsuit for comfortable surfing. If you are particularly sensitive to the cold, please consider bringing a three or four millimeters wetsuit.
Chicama is most well known in international surfing for being one of the longest left-hand waves in the world. With the right conditions, this left-hand point break offers rides of 2.2 kilometers. Rides of up to two and a half minutes are possible, giving surfers time and space to perfect maneuvers and progress their technique at unrivaled speeds.
On an average day, the point break is split into six takeoff zones, named El Cape, El Point, Las Dos Tetas, El Hotel, El Hombre, and El Malecon. The six take-offs offer subtly different waves, meaning that there are always options to tailor the experience to the client’s level and preference. There are a number of other great surf spots around Chicama which are also options for a variety of conditions.
Pre-Inca mud temples, citadels, and tombs are accessible in the local area around Chicama and are among some of the most important Peruvian archeological sites.
Trujillo is Peru’s third most populous city which is a one hour drive from Chicama and is well known for its fantastic cuisine and local dance; the Marinera. There are also opportunities to wander the historic old town along the banks of the Moche river.
Puerto Chicama is a relatively poor fishing community with strong roots in ocean trades. Paint this on the rugged desert backdrop of the natural coastline and you have the opportunity to take some fascinating and varied photographs.
