Full description

Start with pickup from your hotel in Lima at around 05:00 AM, all depends your location in Lima, where you will board the coach for a 03:30-hour journey to Paracas town. Before getting to Paracas, we will stop to have breakfast. On your arrival in Paracas, make your way to the dock where you will board a speedboat to the Ballestas Islands. During your journey to Ballestas, see the enigmatic figure of the Candelabro, a stunning design drawn on the side of a hill in the Peninsula. There are many hypotheses regarding its origin, some believe it is related to the Nazca Lines but still found no proof or evidence that can define its creation. In the Ballestas Islands, you will see a stunningly rugged world filled with birds and sea lions. You will navigate around the islands at a distance allowed, and depending on the sea conditions, visit nearby caves. Return to the port at 11 am, and spend some time in Paracas where you will have free time for restrooms or a short time to relax. Then, continue to the next destination, Huacachina oasis. Have a small break to prepare for your desert tour; then board a buggy for 1-hour adventure across the sand dunes that surround the water source. Return to Huacachina and have time for refreshment. Continue towards to traditional vineyard and taste the best of the local wine and Pisco or lunch at the vineyard restaurant, then Drive back to Lima arriving and dropping off at your hotel.

What a day! Amazing from start to end! The guides were really friendly, organised and informative. We saw and got up close to sea lions, penguins and pelicans on the boat tour, had a great lunch and wine/pisco tasting in Ica and topped it all off with a crazy fun time dune bugging and sandboarding in haucachina. 100% recommended and fantastic value for money!

It was a great experience! We did spend full day on it and it was so worth it! It was a long ride(about 4h to get there), but we had stops which made it easier to handle. Breakfast was so so, then we headed to Paracas. Boat trip was very nice. Then we stoped at the winery, had a short tour and pisco tasting (which is included). Also there was a super nice restaurant with great atmosphere and tasty food with affordable prices. Next stop was oasis with buggy and sandboarding. Buggy was super fun, we really enjoyed it. About sandboarding, it looks scary, but ended up being safe and nor scary at all (you will slide with your belly on board). We did it one time only and then had some more time to spend in the oasis itself. Be ready to have sand everywhere after buggy and sandboarding so dress accordingly:) We arrived back to Lima at about 9:30pm The guide was nice and helpful. Big thanks!

The tour was mostly in Spanish, even though I picked English. This was because majority everyone else was from a Spanish speaking country. I was alright with it as I can understand a little bit. Be prepared there is alot of commute time. But the places you see are very good.
