At the very least, see the the Santa Maria Cathedral while in Chiclayo.
It's a missed chance if you limit yourself to the points of interest in Chiclayo because the surrounding region has been graced with numerous terrific sights and attractions.
Feel as though you are going back in time during your time in the area. Take a trip to some of the archeological sites for which this region is famous. Faith is a vital facet of every region's make-up, so visit Lambayeque 's churches and other places of worship.
Lambayeque boasts plenty of laid-back pursuits. Set aside some time for bird watching or wildlife watching and feel your stresses melt away.
Taking the time to get your tongue around some common phrases in Spanish is one of the most meaningful compliments you can offer to the Peruvian people. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" is handy. In English, it means "Would you like to dance with me?" You'll also realise that using "Este caballero pagará por todo", which means "This gentleman will pay for everything", can make all the difference.
When it is time to depart from Chiclayo, say goodbye the way they do in Spanish, with a hearty "Adiós."
