Day 1 Bus to Paracas | Nazca Lines Over-Flight

Leave early this morning for a four hour bus ride from Lima to Paracas, a beach town where the desert meets the ocean. Transfer directly from the bus station to the airport for your flight over the Nazca Lines or wait for the others on the ground. These mysterious lines date back to the Nazca period, between 900 BC and 600 AD. The images of the monkey, hummingbird and lizard are so large that they can only be fully viewed from the air. After you are back on ground, transfer to your hotel and enjoy the beautiful sunset over the sands of southwestern Peru.

*If weather does not permit for flights on this day, they can be scheduled for the following day.

Day 2 Isla Ballestas and Paracas

Take a short bus ride to El Chaco, the beach and fishing village near Paracas village. Join a boat ride to explore the arches and caves of the islands that play home to thousands of sea birds. You will also see lounging and active sea lions. From here you will continue on to Paracas National Reserve, where you will view even more of the many species of sea birds that grace the area. Flamingos can often be viewed feeding in Paracas Bay. You will get an opportunity to visit the fishing village of Launillas and the Paracas museum.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
