Discoteca Truxillo is the main disco in town, with a good mix of music and people. Entrance ranges US$1.50–2.50, depending on the night, but a stamp allows guests to leave, barhop, and come back. Thursday is karaoke night. Right on the beach is Arenas Discotec y Restaurante. A good local bar is Henry’s Place, with several pool tables. The restaurant/bar at the Casa Kiwi, outside of town on the road to Puerto Castilla (you’ll have to take a taxi at night if you’re not staying there), always has a group of young travelers drinking beers, playing pool, and swapping stories.
Trujillo ’s annual patron festival is held on June 24 in honor of San Juan Bautista. The festival lasts an entire month, with each neighborhood hosting a party on a different day. The hotels can get pretty busy, and drunks are plenty.
