Where is Piura Located?
In the past, Piura was a small, sleepy town in the middle of the desert north Peru. But thanks to El Nino, small trees and bushes grow here and there and the area becomes greener instead of greener. And that’s not the only thing that has grown here. Also Piura itself has developed more and more into a popular destination, and even if you might not necessarily spend two weeks here, it is a nice change for a two day. What makes the city on the river of the same name? Its incredibly friendly inhabitants – and the uniquely delicious food.
