2 Day Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands

On this Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands 2 days tour, we will travel to Paracas and Nazca towns. Paracas and its ballestas islands represent the diversity of marine life on this side of the Pacific Ocean. The Ballestas Islands are a group of rocky islands located off the Pacific coast of Peru at only 3 hours ride from Lima.
Nicknamed "The Poor Man's Galapagos", the islands are fantastic place to observe wildlife as they are home to thousands of birds, mammals including penguins, sea lions, pelicans and dolphins.  The Ballestas Islands, are protected, meaning you can not swim with the animals or walk on the islands themselves. Instead, you can visit the islands and get very close to them on a boat tour so that’s our mission.

Finished our touring boat in the Ballestas islands,  you will travel to Nazca a few hours away from Paracas.   Nazca town is famously well known for its impressive and enigmatics  drawn lines on the dessert. No one knows exactly what the Nazca lines were used for and are vast theories about it but still it remains a mystery which still open to wide range of interpretations even from aliens interventions on site.  Indeed, the Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands 2 days tour, will be an extraordinary adventure for you to live to the full with us.

    Start
    Lima - Paracas - Nazca

    Your Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands 2 days tour, will start very early on around 03:00 am max, as we have to travel long distance and get to Paracas bay with enough time to get a departure permit and sail off to the Ballestas islands.  

    We will travel for around 3 hours away from Lima and once we get to Paracas, we will get ready to embark on our boat to enjoy our time on the sea.

    Sometimes, the sea gets a bit rough thus, we recommend you to get your breakfast after your boat ride journey to avoid getting seasick.  You still have to bring with you during your travesy a hat, sunblock and a bottle of water.

    During your boat ride, we  will start visiting some of the rock formations across the line coast until get to a famous line of a side of a desert dune named the Candelabra or 'Chandelier' due its shape and no ones knows exactly the meaning of this huge line formation but vestiges found around it date from 200 BC.  Afterwards, we will be sailing more into the sea until we get to section of small islands. Here we will finally see, lots of birds, sea lions, pelican and dolphins, it is a real show of nature to witness all of this in front of us.

    Finished this section of the Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands 2 days tour, around the islands, we will head back to Paracas so you can get some snacks and escort you to take your bus to your next adventure in Nazca.  

    DAY 1
    Over flight the Nazca Lines and back to Lima

    Today we will pass around your hotel and leaving early on, to get in time to the local airfield in Nazca.  Here we will have to wait some time to get the go on our Cessna planes. Safety instructions will be given before our final departure.  

    We have to remark that this Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands 2 days tour, is one of the most excitement ones, as you will be flying to an enigmatic location and see the drawing lines on a big scale. If we think carefully, that the Nazca people a culture dated 200 BC (well before the Inca times) were using a set cordells to guide themselves in the drawing of such amazing figures, it was indeed challenging.   There are theories that indicates the 250 figures, yes there a lot them, symbolise a big calendar or another one a cult to bring water on the area as it is one of the most desertic ones in the world. The idea in drawing animals figures facing the sky (which are seen mostly in forest regions or in the sea ) were a dedication to their deities to protect them against drought.  

    After contemplating the Nazca figures from the sky such as the Monkey, The Condor, the hummingbird, the Astronaut, among others, we will return to the airfield and get prepared to head by bus to Lima.  At your arrival to Lima, one of our representatives will be waiting for you to escort you to your hotel. We wish you were having a superb time on your Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands 2 days tour, and hopefully we will see you very soon.
