Caballos Peruanos de Paso y Marinera

Not just the capital of northern Peru, Trujillo is also the official National Capital of Marinera (marinera being the most famous and fun-to-watch dance on the coast). The dance is essentially an epically romantic reenactment of old-fashioned courtship, complete with handkerchief and hat tricks. You can see a performance paired with another local signature—a demonstration of graceful Peruvian Paso horses—twice every afternoon by the Caballos Peruanos de Paso y Marinera.
