Paracas

Trip Planner South America  /  Peru  /  Ica Region  /  Paracas
(4.2/5 based on 4,200+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, beaches
A port town largely devoted to tourism, Paracas serves as a popular starting point for exploration of Peru's south coast. Trips to islands off the coast and around the national reserve rank among the most popular things to do in Paracas. The popular beach resort town offers a good number of places to eat and sleep after a long day's adventuring, as well as beach and water sports facilities. Paracas sits in a sandy bay, where strong winds carry the sand through the air--in fact, the town gets its name from this phenomenon, deriving from the Quechua for "sand rain." To personalize your trip to Paracas, create itinerary details specific to you using our Peru vacation trip planner.

Where to stay

A beach resort town located close to a national park and several islands, Paracas benefits from a set of accommodations that suit the diverse tastes of its many visitors. Options both luxury and basic sit on the edge of the main coastal road, offering extensive views of the water and additional facilities, including pools, spas, and onsite restaurants. Move farther from the water to find budget-friendly guesthouses, offering comfortable rooms but few amenities. To the south, a cluster of eco-lodges and resorts mark the entrance to the national park, and make good use of the additional space just outside of the main town.
