Pisco Things to Do: 12 reviews and 21 photos
Just a few weeks removed from a ten-day trip to the Galapagos, I had low expectations for the Ballestas Islands. I was pleasantly surprised. The wildlife is nowhere near as tame as it is on the Galapagos. And rather than exploring the islands on foot, you are limited to a couple-hour boat tour. But the numbers of sealions and seabirds (particularly boobies, pelicans, and three species of cormorants, but also including more special species such as Humbolt Penguin and Inca Tern) are staggering. Additionally, there are several unique and rather amazing rock formations which, given the mass of flapping seabirds, seem almost alive. The short trip out to the islands, which is often combined with an afternoon tour of the nearby Paracas National Reserve, is time well spent.
