Islas Palomino, Callao
(4.6/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
A kind of mini Galapagos, Islas Palomino is a group of small islets rich in wildlife and lush tropical beaches. A large population of sea lions and seabirds are native to the area, so take your camera or binoculars if you wish to spot the creatures during your visit. Swimming with the sea lions is a viable option here, though visitors who choose to do so are advised that these are wild and unpredictable animals. If you're prone to motion sickness, be aware that the boat trip to the islands can be very choppy. See Islas Palomino and all Callao has to offer by arranging your trip with our Callao tour planner.

  • The promotional materials talk about 3 islands when actually 2 are just rocks in the water with a one or 2 sentence history. It is a long ride out to the Palomino Islands but it was worth it(sort of)....  more »
  • Incredible place in front of Lima. A colony around 7mil sea lions and seals. The tour includes bathing them, and almost touch them. Highly recommended for nature lovers.

  • Worth, the island is beautiful, you can interact with the sea lions, when I was the guide was super helpful, I think worth the price I paid for the tour, included transportation to the island, the Guide, the wetsuit and snack. The landscape until you reach the palomino island is amazing, if possible, do this tour.
