Bursting with wildlife and amazing desert landscapes, this destination is a favorite for nature and archaeology-enthusiasts alike! Bird-watching and photography are very popular in the Paracas National Reserve. Biodiversity is so abundant in Paracas, don’t be surprised if you meet up close with some gorgeous sea lions, Humboldt penguins and pink Peruvian flamingoes, especially around the area known as the Ballestas Islands.

But this area has much more to offer. Explore the relatively unknown and pristine Moron Oasis surrounded by impressive sand dunes, join a Pisco tasting experience in a 17th century vineyard, ride Peruvian Paso Horses in the deserts of Ica, discover a lost canyon and fly over the mysterious Nasca Lines to observe these mesmerizing designs in the driest desert on Earth.
