What you can expect

In the morning, after breakfast, the transportation service will pick you up at your hotel to transfer you to the Paracas pier, more precisely to the Chaco station: boarding point for the boat trip to the Ballestas Islands.

It is a natural reserve of beautiful geological formations, impressive fauna and lags of a pre-Incan culture, that dominated the desert to install a successful society in adverse conditions. The Ballestas Islands are inhabited by bobo birds, pelicans, sea lions and Humboldt penguins, among other species found in the archipelago.

On the way you can see the still inexplicable lines drawn in the sand forming a candelabrum. At the end of the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Paracas
