Most guidebooks emphasize there isn't much of anything to do in Chiclayo. It's a very usefull city, and that's it. Still, the Plaza de Armas is a nice place, although it lacks colonial splendour. The Mercado Modelo and the market area in general are nice places to hang around. If you arrive here from the middle of the jungle it's paradise though: supermarkets, shops, even a cinema!   The most important museum of Chiclayo isn't even in Chiclayo but in Lambayeque. Other atractions of the city are it's beaches.
