Description

The Ballestas Islands, located off the southern coast of Peru, are known for their range of diverse wildlife and surrounding beauty. See the best of the islands and the adjacent Paracas National Reserve on this private full-day tour from Lima, featuring informative commentary from your guide and including all meals and transportation.

Meet your guide at your centrally located Lima hotel for an early morning 4:30 a.m. pickup. Relax on the drive out to Paracas and enjoy a prepared breakfast when the sun comes up. Request as many stops as you would like to take photos and stretch your legs during the drive.

Upon arrival in Paracas around 7:30 a.m, head straight to the Paracas dock to catch the first boat of the day to the Ballestas Islands, also known as the Mini Galapagos. Tour the islands with your guide to learn about the ecosystem and native wildlife, including sea lions, penguins, and more. 

Then, continue to the city of Ica to tour a chocolate factory and a winery. Enjoy lunch at the winery with a signature chica morada, or traditional non-alcoholic drink made from purple corn.

After lunch, drive to the Oasis of Huacachina, where you can take a sand buggy or a sandboard through the dunes of Ica. Take pictures and enjoy the sunset view during free time.

Return to your hotel in Lima by roughly 8 p.m.
