Los Faroles is a fun and personable family run Hotel and Surf Camp. It is the kind of place, that when the swell is up, local and foreign surfers come to hang with old friends and make new ones. Carlos started the first zodiac surf lift at Pacasmayo in 2006. He and his 2 drivers, whom are brothers, are expert guides in all conditions. This is the spot to be, when the waves are pumping. In the morning, one awakens to the excitement of boat preparations, surfers grabbing their wetsuits from the drying racks, and boards being waxed. After surf, folks gather around the photographers and videographers, to review the days action.
Los Faroles has a large range of lodging options. There are several dormitory rooms, with anywhere from 2 – 5 beds. There are several private doubles, 3 small bungalows, and depending upon availability, larger apartments for rent on the grounds. Apartments have their own kitchen. There are 2 large communal kitchens, one smaller kitchen for the 3 bungalows, big outdoor grill. All rooms have TV, Cable and Wifi. There is a communal TV room as well with a large flatscreen and DVD.
When not surfing, Los Faroles is great for relaxing in the biggest, greenest garden in town. Chill in the hammocks, jump on the trampoline, or test your balance on the slack line. There is also a spacious outdoor lounge with foosball and ping pong.
The small restaurant serves 3 meals daily. Huge servings of healthy pastas, chicken dishes, and fresh fish ceviche, that the fishing town of Pacasmayo is famous for.
Other watersports common to Pacasmayo are Kitesurfing, Windsurfing and SUP. The area has several pre-Inca ruins. Within 20 minutes drive is Dos Cabezas, a little known and recently excavated Pyramid. To the south an hours drive is the site of El Brujo. 2 Hours south to Trujillo is Chan Chan and Huacas Del Sol y la Luna. 2 hours to the north near Chiclayo is El Señor de Sipán.
