Chimbote Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Located on the west coast of Peru north of Lima and south of Trujillo, Chimbote, with a population of over 336,000, is the most important fishing center in Peru. With 30 fish canneries, Chimbote has about 75 percent of the fishing activities in Peru.
A major earthquake in 1970 pretty much destroyed Chimote, so most of this city is fairly young. With buildings having been built mostly within the last 35 years.
