Wind-carved cliffs, diverse marine life, and an endless desert that was once covered by the sea all characterize Peru’s prized coastal destination of Paracas. Here travelers will stay in a small fishing town on the shores of the bay and can spend your days exploring the vast nearby National Reserve by bike, go kart, foot, or car. It is a truly marvelous Peru Bucket List destination – perfect as a weekend getaway from Lima or stop on your way further south to Arequipa or Machu Picchu.

Enchanting Winds & The Humboldt Current

The name Paracas comes from a word in the local language Quechua that means ‘sand that falls like rain.’ This is the perfect way to describe the chaotic but enchanting winds that swirl around the deserts of the region. The winds here have shaped the landscape creating completely unique rock formations and shorelines along the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Further west, the sea of Peru and Paracas is characterized by different natural energy, the famous Humboldt Current. Cooling the waters and drying the shores, this ocean current creates a uniquely productive ecosystem that accounts for almost 20% of the world’s fishery caught.
