Puerto Etén

North Coast

Sporting a pleasant malecón (boardwalk), a long, honey-brown beach and slightly muddied waters, this little village is just 20 minutes from Chiclayo. There's a handful of beach-view seafood joints, pretty Republican-era architecture and a few hotels. It's slower than nearby Pimentel, but tourism is beginning to pick up here and new hotels and restaurants are starting to appear.
