What our clients say


Paracas is worth adding to your Peru itinerary if you love the ocean, bird-watching, and archaeology. As one of the first National Reserves in Peru, the Paracas National Reserve is an emblem of Peru’s coastal landscape and its unique biodiversity. Brimming with migratory birds, ocean-kissed rock formations, and sea lions resting on every imaginable surface, nature lovers will find a haven in the Ballestas Islands. Visit the nearby Nazca Lines or Tambo Colorado archaeological complex for impressively preserved pre-Incan artifacts. Or simply relax beach-side in a hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Private car or bus. The 160 mile (260 km) journey from Lima to Paracas can be done in 3 hours with private transportation. The comfortable bus ride will take 4 hours.

We wouldn’t recommend only one day in Paracas simply because of the 4-hour transit time to and from Lima.

2-3 days. Most travelers opt for 2-days/1-night in Paracas. Day 1 includes traveling from Lima to a Paracas hotel and an overnight stay. Day 2 includes a morning tour of Ballestas Islands and a return trip to Lima. An additional day can be added for further sightseeing in the Paracas National Reserve.

Paracas Bay is a richly biodiverse ecosystem in the Pacific Ocean. The Humboldt current flows off the coast of Peru and brings in nutrients that attract all types of wildlife. With over 200+ bird species, 52 fish species, 19 mammals, and 6 reptile species, animal highlights in Paracas include:

  • Humboldt penguins
  • Sea lions
  • Fur seals
  • Humpback whales
  • Blue-footed boobies
  • Guanay guano bird
  • Dolphins
  • Pelicans
  • Flamingos

The best Paracas Hotels offer stunning views of Paracas Bay. Our Top Pick Paracas Hotels are:

  • 5-Star Hotel Paracas, A Luxury Collection Resort
  • 4-Star Hotel Hacienda Paracas

December - March are the summer months on the coast of Peru. Days are hot and skies are clear which draws in Peruvians who summer in their beach houses along Paracas Bay. Wildlife like sea lions can be spotted year round, but the best time to see Humboldt penguins is between April - November.
