Palomino, Callao

4.6
#2 of 8 in Nature in Lima Region
A kind of mini Galapagos, 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.

  • You can hire this ride on time, at the port, of the boats. It's not an expensive ride. It is safe. Sea Lions make a tremendous noise, but the stench just didn't seem as absurd as talking. They are not dangerous and the meeting is quite nice. While in Lima, go!
