White and dark brown are the dominant colors of the many historic buildings in central Chachapoyas. Most houses have tiled roofs that hangover the streets providing at least some protection against the rains to pedestrians. A severe earthquake (7.2 on the Richter scale) severely damaged the historic center in 1928. What can now be observed is mostly the result of extensive reconstruction. Overall a pleasant place to visit. I liked the fact at least one major street (Jiron Amazonas) is now a pedestrian zone. What I missed most, is that streets are not marked. Orientation is problematic. However, with just 32,000 inhabitants Chachapoyas is relatively small, so the problem is manageable. People are friendly, do know street names and are always willing to help out.

Chachapoyas could be a small town, but the people are friendly and the level of delinquency is really low, My tour was around the city, I hired a tour at a travel agency near the main plaza, it was a nice experience to the highlands and history of the people that lived and fought the Incas in the past. Nice story, for sure!

There is a plaza and a church of course plus a lot of restaurants and tour agencies. If you're staying in chachapoyas you won't have a choice about going there but certainly it's nothing special.

The plaza was. Ding rebuild and “tiled” when I was there, so it was inaccessible, but it will be beautiful when it is finished. The town is good for walking as it is small and unique. There are no busses, tu there are ample taxis. However, if you stay in town, your feet are your best mode of transportation.

I spent 8 days in a hostel on the main plaza. Unfortunately the plaza was under extensive renovation so I did not get to enjoy it. But I did enjoy the surrounding area and hiked to the view point and visited the central market close to the plaza. Lots of good restaurants and a few artisan shops. The place to stay to visit the wonderful places ruins and natural sites all within a day's trip.
