Delightful Village
May 2018 • Couples
Visited Pucusana via Viator booking from Lima. It was a 5 hour tour in a comfortable minivan. Stopped on the way at a local bakery where bread is cooked in clay ovens. Very popular with the locals and very clean bathrooms. The village was a working fishing port with colorful boats every where. We toured the island Galapagos and added 6 new birds to my list and the crown of thorns sea star. Well worth the trip.

Day trip to Pucusana
Jun 2017 • Solo
If you are close-minded and need luxury this is not the place for you but if you like seeing the real heart of a place this Village has it all.. it's rustic and beautiful.. the boats in the harbor don't even look real I went on a boat tour with a fisherman who wrote me around for 30-40 minutes.. I met a lot of interesting characters along the Waterway and I watched as fishermen came in with their catch literally unload off the boat and load into trucks to take to Market.. the favorite part of my day was having some Ceviche at Jhony's while watching the locals have a boat race it was offseason so it was much more quaint.. if you are real traveler ..this place is for you.. if you need luxury ..keep going

Authentic Peru for the masses
Jan 2017 • Family
If you want to experience some authentic Peru beach with loads of people, this is the place to check out. A little town, with little street markets, a lot of cheaper restaurants (great authentic ceviche, better than in many places in Lima...) and a not sooo beautiful beach and fisher boats all over the place.

Just a fishermen town
Feb 2015 • Couples
In summer it is quite crowded and in winter it is cold and empty.
Would not waste my time visiting unless you are a resident of Lima.

A nice place for a summer day
Jan 2015 • Solo
Pucusana is a fishing town situated 50 Km southern Lima. There are a lot of fish restaurants where you can eat very good "ceviche". You can take a fisherman boat and see all the bay and the Naplo beach. I was there yesterday enjoy a sunny summer Sunday, You can arrive there easy by bus. Take a bus in Grau Avenue (in the city Center) or a bus in the Panamericana road. the tryp from Lima is around 1 hour.

Hidden Fisherman's paradise with no tourist.
Nov 2014 • Family
My daughter and I rode on a handmade wooden fishing boat from the Harbor to the Sea. We saw penguins, sea lions and a variety of wildlife! It was a fun day. On the way our guide stopped at a local bakery with a traditional adobe clay oven. We enjoyed fresh bread that I must admit rivaled croissants in Paris.

Nice extension to Pachacamac
Oct 2014 • Couples
Taxi from Lima to vist the Pachacamac archeologcal site 40 kms south of Lima, and then persuaded the driver to take us the addition 30 kms to Pucusana fishing village. This is a nice setting with a large number of colourful fishing boats in a peaceful harbour. There is a lot of wildlife in and around the harbour itself, and you can extend the visit with a short trip in a boat by one of the fisherman. It seems that its the season of the giant squids, with two boat loads of them arriving while we watched much to the amusement of the locals. Impressive!

Had lunch at Jhony's, which had good, fresh civiche. My wife and I had shared this as a starter and then found that we had difficulty finishing the main (lomo saltoado). The quantities are such that sharing is a good option.

We enjoyed the day. The taxi ended up at 150 soles.
