They will soon climb the Presidential plane and fly along Peru's north coast and Citadel of Chan Chan to their first destination: the fishing village of Huanchaco, to see intrepid fishermen riding the waves using straw boats - Caballitos de Totora...

To appreciate better how important these are in Peru culture, let's watch this short video as an introduction...



Huanchaco is a name that comes from the Mochica word "Huacocha" and means "beautiful lagoon with golden fishes".

This is the only place in America where you will see them built as it was more than three thousand years ago. A tradition that goes back to pre-Inca times.
Please don't miss it, and try Ceviche as well.


Let's go now to the actual first leg of the Royal Tour...





Next stop...Iquitos, right on the Peruvian Amazon jungle and a visit to the Yahua (Yagua) community on the Momón river...
