    Stop At: Ballestas Islands, Paracas National Reserve, Pisco Peru

    The fantastic Ballestas Islands boat tour is a vibrant and colorful excursion in Paracas, with this tour you can see sea lions and endangered Humboldt penguins. For 2 hours you will come face-to-face with these amazing animals in their original habitation while you are on a speedboat.

    Occasionally, it is even possible to see dolphins and whales. Obviously, this tour is a spectacular choice for animal lovers and birdwatchers. In addition to the animals named before, a broad range of seabirds also call these rocky islands their home. You may see and hear pelicans, boobies, red-footed Guanay cormorants and a lot other kinds of birds.

    While you are on the speed boat, you can take a look to a mysterious geoglyph, similar to the Nazca Lines, that was made on a big sand cliff 1,000 years ago. This is the famous "Candelabro" and it remains the source of much speculation and controversy.

    Stop At: Paracas National Reserve, Carr. Punta Pejerrey Peru

    The Paracas National Reserve tour is a great choice for travelers who are looking for a cool excursion in a nice setting. In this excursion, the attraction is the wildlife, beauty of the ocean, nice beaches and desert landscapes.

    In this tour you will enjoy red-sand beaches, incredible cliffs and coastal dunes. Your English speaking tour guide will explain about the Paracas Culture, who survived at this desert for centuries and named the town Paracas because that word means “storm of sand” in their old language.

    In this tour you also can see flamingos coming to feed during most of the year, although to protect the flamingos we will need to stay far away from them. Almost finished the tour, travelers will have a chance to eat a lovely fresh seafood lunch at a restaurant inside the National Reserve Paracas.
