Hotel Libertador Trujillo
This regal 79-room property sits right off of Trujillo’s main historic square. Rooms are small but well appointed with rich carved beds and flat-screen televisions. Opt for one of the six suites with generous sitting-room space (some have balconies with carved colonial screens). And don’t miss a workout in the gym, which features hardwood floors and attractive views of the interior courtyard and its pool, or an alfresco meal on the vaulted outdoor patio off of the lush private garden.
