PARACAS RESERVE TOUR
Capital city of the department of the same name - Ica is situated 303 kms. South of Lima. It was founded on June 17th, 1563 by the Spanish captain Jeronimo Luis de Cabrera, Count of Chinchón.
In this desert area of Peru we can find traces of the Paracas (700 - 200. BC) and Nazca (200. BC - 700 AD) cultures, Inca ruins and Spanish architecture as well as the desolate beauty of the desert running into the sea. To walk around an oasis surrounded by sand dunes and palm trees; to stroll along the paths of an Inca cemetery; to study the mysterious designs of the Nazca Lines, to enjoy the sea lions as they frolic on the Ballestas Islands; to feel the roughness of the sand and the beating of the wind in Paracas National Park, all are part of the same adventure: to come face to face with the land of cotton, wine and pisco.
This day we will pass to pick up you from their hotels and afterwards we start our excursion to the Paracas Bay.
During our excursion you will visit the centre of interpretation of Paracas, an interesting building that displays through photos, all the fauna, flora, and many other important facts about the Paracas Peninsula. Afterwards we will drive to the Paracas Peninsula, driving throughout a lifeless desert till we reach an area where once stood a great natural rock formation known as the Cathedral.
Unfortunately this old formation did not withstand the 2007 earthquake that virtually left in ruins most of the cities near that zone. At the place our local guide will give you more details about it and then you will have free time to walk along the edge of the peninsula. At this zone you will have Amazing views of the desert and the blue Pacific Ocean.
Later on we will return to our private vehicle and continue driving along the shore of the ocean passing the beach of Yumaque. After some time we will arrive in the little fishing village of Lagunillas, where we will have plenty of time to walk around and also to enjoy great Peruvian food at any of the local restaurants overlooking the ocean. Finally we will return to the hotel.
