We will take a walk through the (carob) native woodland of the museum to observe birds of the dry forest, including the Vermilion flycatcher, Long-tailed mockingbird, Peruvian thick-knee (huerequeque), house sparrow, etc. We will also have the opportunity to take spectacular photos with the background of the Huaca Toledo.

During our tour we will have the opportunity to recognize birds such as: the turkey and black vultures, the American kestrel, cowbirds and other birds of the area.

Next to, we go to the fishing village of Huanchaco to see the reed boats «Caballitos de Totora».

Huanchaco is an ancient fishing village where the fishermen have preserved the ancestral use of the “small horse reed boats” that were used by the Moche and the Chimu people. During the colonial times, Huanchaco was a port that lost its importance during the 1870’s, when Salaverry port was founded.

You will have free time for lunch at beachfront restaurant. Finally, we will return to the cruise.
