Paracas Services


Paracas has no city tourism office. Private tour operators are willing to dispense information and eager to sell tours. Inrena, the institute responsible for the management of the national reserve, has its office at the entry to the park, about three kilometers (1.8 miles) south of the village.


No banks operate in Paracas, but there are GlobalNet ATMs (Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club) at the Hotel Paracas and at the Hilton. A third ATM is in town, inside Eco Marine Turismo (Plazuela Qui├▒├│nez, across from Hostal Mar Azul), but it is often closed. The nearest banking facilities are in Pisco. Some tour operators may change US dollars.

Keeping in Touch

Across from the Plazuela Qui├▒├│nez is Biochip Caf├ę Internet, providing Internet and international call services. Bar-Caf├ę Frayles at the Hotel Los Frayles also has Internet, though at steep prices ($2 per hour). Many hostels now have WiFi. A community phone center with coin-operated phones is located down from the church, next to the supermarket (daily 10 a.m.-8 p.m.). Several independent locutorios on the street parallel to the highway and the beach also have call services. Serpost has no post office in Chaco Beach.


The townÔÇÖs Centro de Salud is next to the church, east of the Plaza Bolognesi roundabout.
Botica Divino Jes├║s This pharmacy has a 24-hour service. On the corner of Plazuela Qui├▒├│nez. Tel: 77-2003
