Paracas

Paracas is the only marine reserve in Peru. Most of it is occupied by water spaces. Created in 1975, Paracas is famous for its unique fauna and above all significant colonies of sea lions. Numerous species of birds live here, including condors and black ostriches on the verge of extinction. In addition to the protection of animals, the reserve has another task – the preservation of the remnants of the ancient parakas culture, which existed in this area in the first millennium BC. Nowadays, a unique underground necropolis with forty mummies, which are now stored in the Ica Museum, was discovered here.

The trip itself is very pleasant and informative, especially for lovers of animals and birds. Huge colonies of booby and cormorants nest on the islands. Their droppings – “guano” – have been used to fertilize the soil since ancient times.

During this trip from the sea you can see the famous mystical drawing of a giant trident or, as it is also called, a “candelabra” on a sand dune, and during sunset you can admire the pink flamingos in the Paracas Bay. Do not forget that during this excursion it is very easy to burn in the sun, so be sure to use a protective tanning cream and hats.

Curious are the excavations of the ancient cemetery of Kahuachi, which is 17 km north of Nazca and, of course, the ruins of the Inca settlement of Tambo Colorado in the valley around the city of Pisco.
