Paracas and Huacachina from Lima with Sand Boarding and Ballestas Islands

Get picked up in the morning at your central Lima accommodation, transfer to the coastal town of Paracas by direct bus, and go aboard a speedboat. The adventure begins as you zip out across the waves to the Ballestas Islands in the Paracas National Reserve.
On arrival, watch native marine species including birds, penguins, and sea lions in their natural habitat. Your informative guide provides insight into the animals’ behavior and environment while you capture the scenery on camera.
Return to Paracas and continue to Huacachina, a remote oasis in the Ica Desert and home to the biggest dunes in South America. Zoom across the sand by dune buggy and give sandboarding a try. With your powerful buggy to help you reach the top of the dunes, you’ll save plenty of energy for sandboarding.
Depart Huacachina and return in comfort to your Lima accommodation, where your tour ends.
