PARACAS NATIONAL RESERVE
RED-SAND BEACHES, DRAMATIC CLIFFS, AND DESOLATE COASTAL DUNES IN THIS
LOVELY NATIONAL PARK WHERE THE DESERT MEETS THE OCEAN
The Paracas National Reserve tour is an excellent choice for travelers who are looking for a relaxing, slow-paced tour
in a beautiful setting. In this tour, the attraction is not the wildlife, but the beauty of the ocean and desert landscapes.
This is a land-based tour in a mini-van, rather than by boat. If you take this tour at 11:00 AM, it gives you a chance to do
the Ballestas Islands tour before starting the Paracas National Reserve tour, which is an excellent tour combination.
Stroll through lovely red-sand beaches like PLAYA ROJA, peek over dramatic cliffs at EL CATEDRAL and photograph
desolate coastal dunes. Your english-speaking tour guide will explain about the natural and human history of the region.
The Paracas civilization - who survived here for centuries - named the region Paracas because that word means “storms
of sand” in their language. You can also see flamingoes feeding during much of the year, although to protect the flamingoes
we will need to stay far away from them.
During the tour, visitors will have a chance to eat an extremely fresh seafood lunch at a restaurant inside the park The
lunch is optional and not included in the cost of the tour.
We can offer this tour as a private or group tour, depending on your budget and whether you wish to travel with other
visitors. The public tour is significantly cheaper, but it involves some delays because the company that operates this tour
will need to pick up passengers from numerous hotels in the region before the tour commences.
