Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos
This is billed as the mini Galapagos Islands. I've never been to the Galapagos so I can't vouch for that, however it was pretty impressive nonetheless.
I've never seen so many seabirds in my life-there were thousands of them, flying in all directions.
Boat trips are available from the harbour at Paracas (hold your nose cos its very smelly around the harbour area) with informative guides. They take about 3 hours round trip.The trip takes you out and round the islands and stops so you can take photos.
It can be cold out on the ocean so take waterproofs or a fleece and watch out for seasickness even if its not very rough.
