Ballestas Islands Private Yacht Trip
When you book, you can choose between two routes for the boat ride. Both start at 8:20 am at the Hotel Paracas pier where we'll board a luxury yacht that will take us to discover the most beautiful areas of Paracas Bay.
You can also choose to complete either option with a delicious meal made up of typical Peruvian dishes such as octopus, ceviche, fish with aji amarillo or chicken skewers. All this will be accompanied by wine, beer or water.
