Huaraz may have charm as a trekking town and perhaps I missed this as I visited just off the cuff of being off season. I thought the town was a little more dirty then I expected it to be, the people was a little shady,...More

Located in the centre of the town, with well laid out flower beds and benches to enjoy the heat of the day, some with a little shade. Views of the snow capped mountains add to the attraction. Fronting the Cathedral, which has been under construction...More

Well, you can hardly miss the Plaza if you are in Huaraz. Choose a sunny moment, find a bench, sit back and enjoy the ambience. The new cathedral is still under construction - looks as though it will need another year or three...

It is a nice place to sit and enjoy the city. Lots of ambulantes and children playing. It is a good starting point to look for something fun to do.
