Where to Stay

After a short drive from Huacachina, I arrived to my favourite hostel – Kokopelli Paracas. This is the same brand as the hostel I stayed at in Cusco and it’s a great option for people who want to be social but don’t want to stay in a “party hostel”. It’s a perfect balance for me. I happened to bump into two Brazilian girls who I met in La Paz… you never know who you are going to bump into on the gringo trail.

I’m in Paracas to visit the Islas Ballastines and go to the nature reserve. The tour of the islands started at 8am and after getting in the speed boat and rocking our fashionable orange life vests, we were off. We saw a variety of birds and penguins, but the sea lions were quite entertaining. 

Paracas means sandstorm because it’s the place where three currents interact. This allows for a lot of biodiversity. 

 

For lunch, ceviche and seafood rice at Restaurant Paracas. It was a delicious meal! 

Tonight I’m headed to Lima for my last day in Peru before flying back to Colombia!
