The coastal town of Paracas is a lively beach spot and a base from which to discover the Nazca lines, the exceptional wildlife of the Ballestas Islands and the 335,000 hectares of the Paracas Natural Reserve. Diverse ecosystems of desert dunes, rocky bays and cliffs provide a rich habitat for dolphins, penguins and sea lions, as well as rare marine birds.
Take a flight over the mysterious shapes of the Nazca Lines, a boat out to the Ballestas Islands and a 4x4 to the Paracas Natural Reserve before relaxing with a well-deserved, locally distilled Pisco Sour.
