Find abundant wildlife, including dolphins, whales, penguins and sea lions, along this craggy Pacific shore.

The Pacific coastline below Lima is well known with travellers for offering exhilarating rides of the Nazca Line, but around half-way between these two points sits the Paracas National Park and a wildlife haven. The National Reserve that boasts the highest concentration of marine birds in the world, including some very rare species. Sea life of all shapes and sizes descend on the craggy coastline, including dolphins, whales, penguins and sea lions, whilst colonies of flamingos fly in to make their home each year.

The Ballestas Islands can be explored on a half-day boat trip. The islands themselves are beautiful, with eroded caves and inlets, and sea lions frolicking around in our wake. We will see gannets, pelicans, and maybe the elusive Humboldt Penguins.
