The gastronomy of this part of the country is based in seafood dishes, sourced at its beautiful beaches. This area also has a pleasant climate and cultural and historic background. Peru has become a culinary experience hub for travelers around the world.

It consists of the areas located from Tumbes to the coasts of La Libertad, as well as the Andean part of Cajamarca, in these areas there is a great diversity of dishes and styles that step aside from the seafood specialty, and is based in more meaty dish alternatives. The northern food offers a high value in its gastronomy based on seafood and preparations with fish of the freshest and unique quality, dishes ranging from a cebiche of black shells, to “sudados” a.k.a seafood stew. Here we name some of the most representative dishes of the northern region so that you do not miss them on your next visit to northern Peru:
