Hotel Pakatnamú

Historic hotel in Pacasmayo

This freshly painted, bright-yellow colonial building along the waterfront has more storied character than other places, despite abrupt color changes from one hallway to the next. The plush rooms come with TV and fridge – some even have built-in car tape decks (sorry no USB attachments). The furnishings are equally anachronistic.

There’s a cozy restaurant and the open-ended hallways spill out onto a wonderful sea-view terrace.
