    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Huanchaco is a small fishing village, with great surfing, just 15 minutes from Trujillo. The tourism is blooming, however the atmosphere stays relaxed and the people are laid back.
    In your free time there are lots for you to do. Surfing is the number one activity here, but you can also visit one of the many archeological sites nearby. Trujillo is a buzzing city with good nightlife, sightseeing and shopping.

Right now we are trying to improve and make this the best hostel in Huanchaco. We are working on installing a ping pong table, a small gym, and other fun activities. We would like our volunteer to help us with ideas to grow our business. If you are a good artist we are also looking for someone to do some cool art around the hostel.
