Paracas and Huacachina- Weekend Trip

December 6, 2019 by admin

Many forget that Lima is built on top of a desert. Lima is tucked between the ocean and the Andes mountains so the weather is usually humid and cloudy, but if you drive 3hrs south you can visit two national parks that celebrate the desert. Paracas, which translates into windy, is a desert park that sits on top of a mountain and is surronded by beaches and a bay full of pink flamingos. On the way back stop by Huacachina the only desert oasis in Peru. 
Ballestas Islands are considered the “Peruvian Galapagos” due the amount of species of birds and fish around the area. Here there are good chances to see lots of sea lions, penguins, the endemic bird Inca Tern, seals and maybe dolphins.
Continuing with this super adventure, it’s time to move to Huacachina Oasis, the only Oasis of South America, here you can have a local lunch and spend some free time. Also you have the option of doing the Sand Boogie or the Sand Boarding
