I came here with my family looking to escape the big city and this place was perfect. From the Chiclayo airport is a few hours by car until you get into this natural reserve with an amazing view of the Chaparri hill.
While we were there we had a chance to see peccari, spectacled bears, foxes, birds and to enjoy being far away from everything.
The accomodation is spartan in adobe houses but for me that was a plus and it adds to the charm of being in a place like that.
I took my two children and they loved it. There are hikes you can do of varying degrees of difficulty but they were all ok for the kids.
Food is included it was ok nothing fancy but fresh home made food. All in all a great place do not expect luxury but enjoy the nature and the rustic accomodation.
