Chimbote -estʃimˈboteEs - Chimbote.ogg is the largest city in the Ancash Region of Peru, and the capital of both Santa Province and Chimbote District.

The city is located on the coast in Chimbote Bay, south of Trujillo and 420 km (261 mi) north of Lima on the North Pan-American highway. It is the start of a chain of important cities like Trujillo, Chiclayo and Piura. The advantages of this geographic location made Chimbote into a transshipment junction for the Santa River valley.
