Day Trip: Lima – Paracas – Lima
Morning early transfer from your Hotel in Lima to Bus Station. 04: 00 am Travel to Paracas by bus, around 08:00 am arrival and transfer to El Chaco dock where you will board a boat for travel around the Ballestas Islands, home to sea lions, Humboldt Penguins, dolphins and a wide variety of resident and migratory birds.
Then we will explore the Paracas Reserve, where the Paracas culture flourished 2000 years ago. The reserve has a rich biodiversity, including 160 fish species, 216 bird species and 25 types of dolphins and whales. In the afternoon transfer to the Bus Station for your return to Lima.
Due to its semi-tropical location, we suggest bringing strong sunscreen and a hat for protection from the sunlight. Once we have visited all the islands, we return to El Chaco dock and continue our tour by bus to Paracas National Reserve — designated a protected area because of its vital marine ecosystem.
There, we visit the Julio C. Tello Site Museum, where your expert guide will offer insights about exhibited artifacts from ancient cultures that inhabited this region of Peru’s desert coast: Elaborate textiles and funerary shrouds, mummies, and deformed, elongated skulls.
Return to the city of Lima.
