Pimentel is a very relaxed fishing village at the north part of Peru in Chiclayo. We started to get on the surf boards there and got to know the excellent ceviche, a dish in which raw fish is marinated and cooked without heat in citrus juice. Very yammy. We even cooked it ourselves with fresh fish which we bought right at the beach. On Sundays people come from all over Peru to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Happily there are not many beach vehicles yet, just the Caballios de Totora. These boats are reed boats used be the Peruvian fishermen since centuries. The people in Pimentel are very relaxed and friendly.
