Enjoy a boat tour around the Ballestas Islands, where you will find a variety of wildlife (cute penguins, sea lions, migratory birds, and more). Taste a wide variety of Peruvian wines and of course the famous Pisco (liquor made from grapes). Tour the impressive dunes of the Ica desert by buggy and be amazed by the beautiful sunset in the middle of a vast inhospitable desert. An experience that you should not stop living.

Tie the board to your feet or lie face down on the board and slide down some incredible dunes. We are the only company that operates a 2-hour buggy tour through the Ica desert!

You will be picked up from your accommodation in (San Isidro / Miraflores / Barranco) early in the morning. Then we will drive (3 hrs approx.) to the Paracas bay in our bus. 

Upon our arrival we will go to the port of the small bay to board the motorboat that will take us to visit the Ballestas Islands, famous for their marine life (penguins, sea lions and countless birds). This tour lasts 2 hours.

Finished the boat tour we will go to Ica (approx 1hr of travel). Here we will visit one of the vineyards in the area, famous for the production of wines and Pisco. We will taste a variety of them “Viva la fiesta, salud”. We will have time for a delicious regional lunch. Follow the recommendation of our local guide (Carapulcara & sopa seca, Arroz con pollo, Huancaina, etc) ENJOY!

Full belly happy heart! typical local phrase. Already satisfied and with the joy of having enjoyed a culinary experience we will go to the oasis.

Upon our arrival in Huacachina (meeting point: Bananas Hostel) we will prepare for our last activity of the day “driving through the impressive dunes of the Ica desert in a buggy, an experience once in a lifetime. From here we will take a short walk up the dune (8 mins) where all the buggies are parked.

This tour is a roller coaster style tour in certain parts of the desert, combined with sandboarding (bodyboarding) activity and lasts 1 or 2 hours depending on your ticket. We definitely recommend you the 2 hours, since that is the only way to enjoy the wonderful sunset.

After having fun, we will return to our meeting point, here we will get ready to get back to Lima (approx 4hrs of travel). We will arrive in Lima and we will drop off you in your respective hotel.

Ballestas Island: Be aware that the weather in Paracas (sand rain) is sometimes unpredictable. This means that if for reasons of bad weather the tour to the Ballestas Islands (offshore) could be cancelled, if this happened we would opt for a second option Bahia Blanca Tour, which is a small version of the Ballestas Islands. You will be able to appreciate the same marine species and migratory birds, the difference being that it is located close to the bay.

If there is intense bad weather on the day of the tour and we will not be able to leave by boat, we will continue with the tour to the Paracas Reserve, here you can visit: The Cathedral, the Isthmus and the famous Red Beach. This is a photography tour. Nature usually plays tricks on us; as well as very good.

Many times the weather tends to change suddenly, and many times waiting a bit made it possible for everyone to visit the Ballestas Islands. But it is not always guaranteed. We ask for your understanding, especially if you are traveling through Peru. We make these changes for your safety, most importantly.

Sunset: From our experience, the weather in Ica is usually hot almost always throughout the year. But sometimes for reasons that we do not know (rarely) it is usually a little cloudy in the city and even in the oasis. Should this happen, we ask for your understanding.

To consider

*Keep in mind that during Holy Week, National Holidays (Celebration of the Independence of Peru), Christmas and New Year. The tours: Ballestas Island and Dune buggy & sandboard have a duration of 1hr.

*Also consider that traveling during this time, it may be a bit uncomfortable due to the influx of local and foreign travelers. We may have to wait a little longer than normal.
