Ballestas islands tour from Huacachina

The Ballestas Islands are into the Paracas National Reserve. To get there we pick you up from your accommodation in Huacachina or Ica and drive 1 hour. Once in Paracas we take a speed boat and travel 30 minutes to the Islands while a guide explain interesting facts. In the islands you can see thousands of birds, sea lions, a drawing called “El Candelabro” and in winter it is very likely to see humpback whales. After this tour there is 1 hour to spend in Paracas city and then go to the reserve where you will see red and yellow sand beaches, amazing landscapes and maybe Flamengos. In the reserve we also have lunch (not included in the price).
