Julio Cesar and his mother are great hosts. The first day I arrived, they invited me for lunch in their home and told me about all there is to see and do in Chiclayo, where to eat, etc. The apartment is very comfortable and airy on the top floor of their building. Julio helped carry my bags up the stairs. The apartment is situated in a gated community and is very safe. There is a big supermarket just a five minute walk away. The apartment is midway between downtown Chiclayo (nothing much to see there) and Lambayeque that has one of the best museums in Peru.
