Journey by boat from Paracas for a 2-hour trip to Peru’s unspoiled Ballestas Islands, a marine sanctuary where you can observe a wealth of sea birds and marine life in their natural habitat. Spot for some of the Islands’ rich array of penguins, Peruvian boobies (native birds), sea lions and Peruvian pelicans, along with many more species. If you’re lucky, you might even observe a dolphin or two. You’ll also enjoy views of the mysterious 490-foot (150-meter) Candelabra geoglyph, rumored to have been constructed in ancient times. Your boat ride also includes the services of a guide.

Сам Паракас очень маленький, можно пройти за 20 минут. В тур не включили оплату за заповедник, платили на пирсе, в результате сели в лодку последними. На самих островах просто супер интересно. Тучи птиц, пеликанов, пингвинов. Очень много котиков. Подплывали очень близко, фоток сотни две сделали. Интересно увидеть морскую живность так близко.
