    About the only realistic activity in Salaverry itself is to stand on the deck and watch the activity going on around you in boats

    I have been completely unable to find any tourist information whatever about the port itself. No hotel reviews, restaurant reviews - nothing.

    There doesn't seem to be anything to DO in Salaverry except use it as a port of entry to visit other sites in the area such as Chan Chan, Colonial Trujillo & Huacas de Moche. If you come in by cruise ship, the ship will arrange tours. We just did the city of Trujillo (photo 4) and the Moon Temple (Huacas de Moche - photo 2).

    Otherwise, you can stand on the deck and look at the port, and the lighthouse and that's about it.

    We got on a huge double decker bus - climbing to the top seats was like scaling a mountain. Then when we got up there, there was a sun screen mesh over the windows that we could not take picture through, or even see out very well.

    So if I wanted to take a picture I had to stick my camera up over the seat in front of me and take a picture out the window front window 'blind' (photos 2-5)

    Most of the traffic to Salaverry is by boat - it is a port after all. It is the port for the third largest city in Peru - Trujillo. To get to Trujillo itself, you have to take a bus or car from the port, or you have to come by air. To get to Salaverry, you come by boat.

    One of the places we went to from here was a Peruvian Paso farm. At one point in the history of Peru, the horse farms were disbanded and most of the horses went to other countries. But they are rebuilding the breed now and they have a restriction on exporting breeding stock.

    We went to the farm and walked by the horse pens, Then we were given Pisco Sours (which are really sour) and some nibbles (very good). We could also have water or juice. They did a demonstration ride for us and then we could ride too if we wanted to.

    Favorite thing: Except for our ship, the primary types of traffic in the port were container ships, and local fishing boats.

    Favorite thing: I found out about the Morro Carretas lighthouse in the port of Salaverry from Russ Rowlett's Lighthouse website.

    Specificially, he said
    1974. Active; focal plane 145 m (476 ft); three white flashes every 10 s. 17 m (56 ft) Máncora class square cylindrical concrete tower with lantern and gallery, rising from a square pyramidal base, painted black with an orange band. The lantern is also painted orange. .. Located on a steep bluff just south of Salaverry, a seaport just south of Trujillo in northern Peru. Site status unknown.

    The lighthouse appears to be anchored by guy wires to the hill behind it and in front of it is a small structure that appears to be the back range marker. The front marker is an orange (photo 3)
