You will be taken to the bus station where you will board your bus to
Paracas(a trip of roughly 4 hours). When you reach the city, you will be driven
to the local airport of Pisco(45 minutes away) for your flight over the
incredible Nazca Lines, drawn on the pampas of the same name. You will see
several figures of stylized plants and animals drawn in an enormous labyrinth
of straight lines, trapezoids, triangles, and spirals scattered about the
desert floor that has remained preserved for about 2000 years. After the
overflight, you will have the rest of the day to yourself to.
Accomodations for the night in Paracas.
You will set out early in the morning for the Paracas Bay. There, you board a motorboat and take a roughly two hour ride to the Ballestas Islands, located off the coast from the Paracas National Reserve, the largest natural sanctuary on the Peruvian coast. These two beautiful islands are home to thousands of migratory birds that share their habitat with colonies of bellowing sea lions. Along the way to the island, you will see a mysterious design, called the Candelabra, drawn on a side of a sand dune. When the time is right, you will return to Lima by bus and, once there, be transferred to your hotel.
