Camping in Reserva Nacional de Paracas - Campground Paracas - Peru

Imagine gazing beneath the clearest of night skies, ablaze with a billion stars. The gentle lapping of waves against the sands lulls you into a deep slumber. In the morning, you can observe the multitudes of birds that come to visit the shores. This can be your experience, as camping is permitted in the Reserva Nacional de Paracas: at the Interpretive Center (six kilometers / 3.5 miles from the garita, or checkpoint), Lagunillas (six kilometers / 3.5 miles from the checkpoint) and at Playa Yumaque (10 kilometers / 6 miles). You must bring camping gear (including stove, as open fires are not allowed), food and drink.

Getting There:

If you are ready to hike in along the road, take a Chaco-Paracas combi as far as the Hilton Hotel (tell the driver to let you off there; $1.25 from Pisco, $0.50 from Playa Chaco), then walk up the road to the garita. From there you will have to walk along the roads to the campsites.
