Full description
Depart Lima very early in the morning at 04:30 AM and travel south in a bus while having breakfast and entertainment on board.

Arrive at Paracas at 07:30 AM and board a boat to the Ballestas Islands. Discover an uninhabited wilderness rich in marine fauna and animals such as the blue-footed booby, guanay guano bird, Humboldt penguins, sea lions and fur seals. Return to Paracas and take a look at the Candelabro geoglyph on the way. It is thought that it was used as a navigational guide and is part of Nazca culture. 

Next, go on a winery tour and taste some of the best wines and piscos (the official Peruvian drink) in all their varieties. Then, enjoy a delicious peruvian lunch with drinks included. Explore the sand dunes and oasis of Huacachina. This is a great place to practice sandboarding and experience extreme buggy rides in the desert with V8 modified vehicles.
