Highlights of the Southern Coast

See diverse species of aquatic birds and marine life such as sea lions, Peruvian boobies, cormorants and Humboldt penguins on a boat tour of Islas Ballestas off the southern coast of Peru near Paracas. Muse over a giant sandstone carving on the face of one of the Paracas Peninisula, the Candelabro de los Andes, whose mysterious image and creation has caused just as much controversy as the Nasca lines.

Ponder the centuries-old drawings of the Nasca Lines in the desert sand. These images and figures etched into the sands have provoked various theories of who created them: traders, nomads, or even men from outer space.

Sandboard in the Ica Desert. Surf down Cerro Blanco, the world’s highest sand dune, measuring 2,078 meters (6,774 ft), or hit some of the smaller dunes near Huacachina Oasis.

Find out what makes the sweet in the pisco sour by taking a tour of a winery in Ica or Moquegua. Assume the Peruvian nationality for a day by paying tribute to the drink on February 8, National Pisco Sour Day. Up
