Chicama is a natural wonder of the world and would be a mecca for the surfing world if more people remembered that it exists. Thankfully it remains off the high-profile surfing circuits thanks to its difficult access and the cultural barriers that foreign travelers often experience when visiting Peru unaccompanied.

The wave begins far from the town, some 2 kilometers out to the cape. The wave breaks along the cape and tends to hit its first reforming section at the point. The point is a large rock outcropping, where the wave tends to close-out as it arrives from the cape, but experienced surfers can often make the long barelling section in front of the point and begin the longest ride of their lives towards the pier. Taking off from the point, the ride takes you flying past the sand dunes and the hotels, arriving at the section known as El Hombre, which peels right in front of the infamous El Hombre motel/hostal. When the section from the point connects with the El Hombre section, you can ride the wave all the way into the town, right up to the pier! Most people don't have the legs to keep up with this fast rifeling wave for that entire distance.

Ambiente

Chicama is one of the best waves in the world and visitors should be respectful towards the locals and the environment. We are serious about protecting the town's greatest natural resource and visiting surfers are always welcome when they arrive with good vibes and friendly, respectul intentions. Chicama has been populated by native peruvians for more than 6,000 years and it is the ancestors of the local people that first started surfing on reed surf-craft thousands of years ago! Among the best local surfers are Juan Arroyo, aka Pajarete, a good friend that owns one of the hotels in front of El Hombre. El Zorro is also a greatly respected surfer that was one of the first local chargers and a great photographer.

General

You can choose to stay at the luxurious Chicama Surf Resort or you can stay at any of the cheaper hotels along the beach front. The Chicama Surf Resort has the benefit of the tow boat that only upsets those that are snaked by it. Personally, I like to paddle and walk, but blaming your lack of courtesy on the tow boat is justified since there are more than plenty of waves for everyone and the tow boat is a problem for everyone, while it is a lifeline for the unexperienced (kooks) and older surfers. Remember: someday you too might be unfit and want to throw money away to keep up with the good surfers , though unable to paddle such an amazing distance. Walking is for those that want to be blessed by the gods of Chicama, those brave souls willing to sacrifice like the legendary surfers that pioneered the place. Walking and paddling is also for the budget travelers that can't afford or refuse the laziness of the boat. Your best bet is to visit Chicama with Machapu Adventures, since we are the locals and we will make sure you have a great experience either walking or by boat. Good luck to those that still want to venture here on their own,

Must-Do... - Insane, mechanical surf break. I took my son there in 2011 (he was 11) on our annual boys trip. The mystery is how no one is there at this 1-2 mile wave; the answer is it's always overcast, the water sometimes tastes like chemicals from the fishmeal plant up the cape (we got violently ill one night).. The payoff is the longest rides of your life, and the longest paddles. Fall off? No problem, there's another wave just like it in twelve seconds or so- and no one around. It's downright lonely when you spread a dozen or do surfers along a mile of break.

The water's damn cold, bring booties and your 4/3. Stay at the Lodge if you can swing it. And for God's sake don't paddle back up the point; get out and walk, or pay for the zodiac (free if you're at the Lodge). But go.

Don't stay at Hostal Los Delfines de Chicama - If you go to Chicama, don't stay at the Hostal Los Delfines de Chicama! We were robbed by the staff for US$200 and a phone while we were out surfing. There were no other guests, and the room was locked.. When we checked out, the manager threathen us with a gun so there was no way to get it back even though we knew they took it.. If you look at the post further down, it was the same in 2010 as well...

Mama Paula - Do not get the mama paula boat. The guy is paid for a 3 hour session and with 2 hours he gets out sayng the gas is over. And the boat is so big that after you get in, it keeps stoping to get a lot of surfers in the way to the point. The small boats are the best, if you can pay.

Errores, opiniones.
