Day 1: Pisco – Paracas – Huacachina

We start our day by heading to the Paracas Bay, the starting point of Peru’s largest marine reserve and the second largest in South America.
We arrive at the charming Paracas-Pisco district and head to the “El Chaco” Pier.
Embark on comfortable skiffs with life jackets to explore the Ballestas Islands. Along the way, we admire “El Candelabro,” a structure similar to the Nazca Lines. The Ballestas Islands are rocky formations that house an impressive variety of marine birds such as guaneras, guanay, boobies, pelicans, cormorants, and more.
We return to El Chaco port for free time and lunch (not included) with the possibility of buying souvenirs.
We travel to the city of Ica to visit the El Catador winery. Here, we will taste quality wines and piscos, along with local delights such as chocotejas, alfajores, and jams.
We continue to the mystical Huacachina Lagoon and enjoy its legend. You will have free time for photos and souvenir shopping before participating in the thrilling sandboarding and tubular experience.
Finally, we return to your hotel at the agreed-upon time.
