Money & costs
Changing money in Trujillo is a distinct pleasure; some of the banks are housed in well-preserved colonial buildings. All have ATMs that accept Visa and MasterCard. If lines are long, visit the casas de cambio (foreign-exchange bureaus) near Gamarra and Bolívar, which give good rates for cash.
Banco Continental (Pizarro 620) Housed in the handsome Casa de la Emancipación. Good rates for cash.
Banco Wiese (Pizarro 314)
BCP (Gamarra 562) Has the lowest commission for changing traveler’s checks.
Interbank (Gamarra at Pizarro) Reasonably fast service.
