Paracas

Paracas is an excellent nature and biodiversity destination, it also offers cultural historical attractiveness and it is a good alternative to enjoy relaxing moments
 
The desert and the sea come together in spectacular landscapes in Paracas, in the department of Ica, just a few hours south from Lima. The cliffs that fringe the beaches are teeming with life, millions of birds that live here year-round, and thousands of others that fly from the northern hemisphere and from further south, ranging from guano birds to Humboldt penguins.
 
Boats departure from El Chaco to Islas Ballestas (Ballestas Islands), giving visitors a chance to gaze at the sea lion colonies, millions of birds and you'll see the famous three-pronged Candelabra geoglyph, carved into the sand with a similar technique to the Nazca Lines, although possibly of a different origin: theories range from pirates marking a treasure hiding place to soldiers fighting for Latin-American independence from Spain.
 
By car, or buggies, you can visit the terrestrial area of Paracas National Reserve and enjoy the desert dunes. Back on the traditional circuit, the road leads to the on-site museum and the necropolis and ruins of the burial grounds of the Paracas culture (700 BC.), whose weaving skills have been admired the world over. A trail leads down to a protected bay, the natural habitat of flamingoes, the scarlet-and-white birds that inspired the colors of the Peruvian flag. They are not to be disturbed. Further south lie the striking natural rock formations of the Catedral (Cathedral) and Mendieta.
 
At sunset, the Paracas coast spins through a range of colors, the signal for nostalgic visitors to return to the city.
