What to Expect What to Expect

You will be picked it up at the Paracas Port Terminal (Puerto San Martín) and transferred to Paracas city. At the pier of El Chaco, you will take a speedboat and start your two-hour journey at sea. After seeing the bay and peninsula of Paracas on the way to the Islands you will see an enigma called El Candelabro, a large geoglyph full of mystery, its origin is unknown until today, despite the passage of time and the natural conditions remain imposing in the desert geography of the area. After 15 minutes you will arrive at Ballestas islands with its beautiful landscapes and its classic white color for the guano of islands that brought so much economic abundance to Peru. The major attraction will be stolen by the sea lions as well as some species of birds and mollusks, crustaceans, algae, annelids, echinoderms and others. When returning to the port you will take your transport to start the other part of the tour to Tambo Colorado. It goes through the districts of San Andrés, Pisco, Túpac Amaru, San Clemente, Independencia and Humay, from the highway to see this Inca archaeological zone. After visiting the small museum site to locate us in time and space and know about the Inca Empire and its presence in the coastal area through models and panels, ceramics, weapons and others. Already inside the enclosure, we see the main square, the ceremonial platform or "ushnu", the housing area and the palace of the Inca. Apparently this "Tampu" was built as an administrative, religious, military and traffic control center for those who came from the Andes to the coast and vice versa. After this visit, you undertake the return to the port where your cruise awaits you.
