Paracas Things to See and Do

follow us

The major reason travelers come to Paracas is to see the abundant wildlife and magical landscapes of the Reserva Nacional de Paracas and Islas Ballestas. The more expensive lodges have kayaks available for their guests who wish to explore the sculpted coastline that way. In the afternoon, take a dip in the bay, or sunbathe on the beach. (Parasols may be rented, if you want protection from the strong sun.)  Museo Histórico Paracas is a small museum displaying archaeological artifacts from the región (Daily 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. South side of Avenida Paracas, east of Plazuela Quiñónez. Entry: Foreigners $3.75, nationals $2, children $0.80).
