Paracas

4
A port town largely devoted to tourism, Paracas serves as a popular starting point for exploration of Peru's south coast. Trips to islands off the coast and around the national reserve rank among the most popular things to do in Paracas. The popular beach resort town offers a good number of places to eat and sleep after a long day's adventuring, as well as beach and water sports facilities. Paracas sits in a sandy bay, where strong winds carry the sand through the air--in fact, the town gets its name from this phenomenon, deriving from the Quechua for "sand rain." Paracas is in Ica Region. Add Paracas and other destinations to your itinerary using our Peru route planning tool , and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
