We will pick you up from your hotel at approximately 10:45 AM. Then we will drive towards the famous Paracas National Reserve.

During this excursion, you will be able to appreciate large groups of flamingos that feed by the sea. To get a better view of these beautiful birds, it will be necessary to take a short walk to a viewpoint, from which we can see them much better.

According to some historians, the colours of this beautiful bird inspired General San Martín (the man who fought for our independence and managed to defeat the Spanish crown in Peru) to create our red and white flag when he landed in Paracas Bay for the first time.

Then we will go through the Paracas interpretation room, where they give us a brief explanation about the flora and fauna existing in the reserve. Here are the skeletons of some animals, such as whales, wolves, and penguins, among others. Furthermore, you will learn about the ancient Paracas culture, which inhabited the area for more than 2000,000 years.

Afterward, we will continue our visit through the desert, following a dirt road until we reach the beautiful beach of Lagunillas, where we can enjoy a tasty lunch and drinks right next to the sea. While you enjoy the panoramic views and a tasty lunch, you can think about whether you would like to go for a swim in the sea afterward. You will have enough time to take a swim or stroll along the beautiful beach after lunch.

At around 3 PM we will return to Paracas.
