The tourism information kiosk next to the pier only operates during the summer months (December-March).

Two ATMs serve Huanchaco: to the left of the Municipalidad (La Ribera 725) is a GlobalNet one, accepting Visa, Plus, Cirrus, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club cards. To the right of city hall is a 24-hour BBVA cajero, taking only Visa and Plus. Several businesses along Avenida La Ribera change U.S. dollars and euros, including Huanchaco Multiservice (Av.
