Peru Hop: Paracas to Lima

Our last stop before Lima took us to Paracas where we stayed at the Kokopelli Hostel and enjoyed laying in hammocks and swimming in the pool. But the best part was our tour of what some refer to as “The Poor Man’s Galápagos Islands” or the Ballestas Islands. Here we were able to see, from our boat, sea lions, penguins, pelicans, and many other types of birds. We also saw an ancient candelabra that was drawn onto the surface of the desert.

After the tour of the islands we headed to the national park where we saw a beautiful oceanfront view, and what is left of the cliff side after an earthquake several years ago. Eventually we began our journey back to Lima with a pitstop at an old mansion, that had underground tunnels we were able to walk through.
