  • It is one of the places of Peru without much intervention from the man, place of life and of others to transit of many marine species, if van Paracas considers a "duty" to go to this place

  • Excellent tour to discover the wonders of nature. A bit of patient at the port before turning to the small boats that bring you to the Islands.

  • If they are in Paracas Ballestas Islands is a place not to be missed! the boats surrounded by rock formations where sea lions and various birds are. Recommended!
