The collectors of the colectivos can help you if you don’t know very well where you are going to, the same as the people on the streets. Don’t frighten to ask, the locals are very nice.As an industrial city, characterized for its fishing production and factories, Chimbote must always struggle with the pollution of the environment, which can be seen on the dark of the sea and the smell of the air streams (due to the factories, where the fish flour is processed). Be cautious to carry your personal objects and try to have always coins on the hand to avoid putting out your wallet, considering that the streets, as in many commercial cities, can present risks. Don’t forget to bring a windbreak clothing, sunglasses and sun cream.
