Came across this town while exploring Peru March 2013. Wasn't quite sure how to rate this one. At first impression, it was really depressing. Very poor. Half the tiny homes are run down and abandoned. However, after staying a week, I have grown somewhat fond of it.
First, the surfing is awesome! And I'm not a surfer but I did give it a shot. It is a little gem within the surfing community. If surfing is what you came here to do, then this is the place! It is literally wave after wave of huge crashing fun.
The best and really only surfing school is run by Emmanuel Sanchez, "Huarco". He is very friendly, and I watched throughout the week as he turned first timers into surfers, both kids and adults. Huarco Esquela de Surf (school of surf) is the name and its directly on the beach on the left side. He is highly recommended. He has taught professional competitors how to first surf!
There is another guy that rents surfboards but he is very unfriendly and acts as if he could care less and that you're bothering him.
It is difficult to rate the town. I gave the high marks only for the beach and surfing, not the town itself. Once you settle in at one of the many Hostals, the beach is great. The sunsets are amazing and the beachside food is good, however there isn't much else to do. I stayed at the Cerro Azul Hostal which I found to be the cleanest and friendliest. Enjoy.
