During the pre-hispanic era, the area of Zarumilla was inhabited by the Tumpis tribe, and archeological remains of this have been found. During the Colonial era serveral spaniards claimed ownership over the lands until the captain Miguel Olmedo won the rights in 1785 and built an hacienda called Zarumilla. In 1821 the locals declared their independence and its owner, Joaquín Olmedo, decided to sell the deeds.
During 1941 the city became involved in a battle with Ecuator, part of the ongoing war, in which Peru won. Zarumilla was named province in 1942 and after the end of the conflict all grudges were cast aside and now mantains an economic integration and respect with neighbooring Huaquillas, the ecuatorian border town.
