Description

The tour starts at the artisanal and tourist pier of El Chaco where we board our slider and observe in principle the type of boats that are used in the two main activities in the district of Paracas: Tourism and fishing.

We sail through the Paracas Bay and see the largest peninsula we have in Peru. We stop then at a northern point of the Paracas peninsula to look, photograph and film the Candelabro where the tour guide in brief will explain about the measurements, materials of the area and its possible origin. The navigation continues and after approximately 15 minutes from the Candelabro you will reach the Ballestas Islands where you will find a great biodiversity thanks to the Humboldt current and the upwelling phenomenon in addition to other factors such as sun and winds. Birdwatchers will find a great number of birds such as: seagulls, terns, boobies, cormorants, pelicans, vultures and Humboldt penguins. You will also see crustaceans, echinoderms, mollusks, seaweeds and others. Definitely the star of the tour is the sea lion, which steals the attention of everyone because of its curious behavior. The return trip becomes relaxing and enjoying the sea breeze is a natural anti-stress.

Later we will go to Ica, we will visit a piscos winery, where we will make a tour to the winery, we will taste the good wine and pisco that the winery produces. Then we will visit the Main Square where we will appreciate the 2 beautiful obelisks representing the 2 great cultures that flourished in the department of Ica and the Sanctuary of Luren (Panoramic view). Then we will move to visit the Huacachina Lagoon and learn about its legend, for those who like adrenaline will be able to ride in the tubulars by the dunes and practice sandbording, it will be full fun!
