To start planning your holiday to Downtown Costa del Sol Trujillo


Perched on a corner of Trujillo’s main square, the Downtown Costa del Sol Trujillo is a grand, colonial building with views across the plaza to the cathedral. Rooms offer a comfortable base from which to explore the city and the ruins of Chan Chan.

Amongst the colourful, colonial buildings of Trujillo, the Downtown Costa del Sol Trujillo is a restored mansion with a superb central location on the corner of the Plaza de Armas. The 78 rooms and suites are decorated with rich carved woods and traditional fabrics, alongside conveniences such as en-suite facilities, air conditioning and cable TV. Although simple the rooms are very comfortable.

The hotel’s restaurant, Paprika, serves up traditional northern Peruvian cuisine, famed for its strong flavours and fresh produce. Buffet breakfast is served daily, before you head out and discover the wonders of Trujillo and the surrounding area.  The Walak Bar is the perfect place to relax with a traditional Peruvian Pisco Sour.

Trujillo is a charming city to explore, however it is the nearby ruins of Chan Chan and the Temples of the Sun and Moon that date back over 1,500 years that are the real jewels of the Libertad region. These archaeological wonders are only a short drive from the Downtown Costa del Sol Trujillo.
