Located 12km northwest of Trujillo, the small coastal village of Huanchaco is famous for these high-ended, cigar-shaped totora boats called caballitos, or little horses, that are used by the local fisherman to paddle out to sea and later surf back to shore with their catch.  In recent years Huanchaco has also been gaining popularity amoung surfers and tourists.  There was even a small surf competition taking place on the day we visited.
