Paracas and Huacachina from Lima with Ballestas Islands and Sand Boarding

730 reviews
The coastal and desert regions outside Lima offer a world of outdoor adventure far from the city, but complex bus systems—and, for some visitors, a language barrier­—make exploring a challenge. On this full-day tour, travel in comfort from your Lima hotel and hit Paracas and Huacachina with ease. Spot native marine life in the Paracas National Reserve and try sandboarding on South America’s largest dunes.

"HUACA" is a term used to describe an ancient place of worship, usually a pyramid made of thousands if not millions of sun dried mud bricks. This is a spectacular place that has en excellent restaurant right next to the HUACA PUCLLANA. A place must to visit.

Huaca Pucllana is a nice quick tour that you can take while visiting Lima. I was able to take a guided tour while spending 12 hours in Lima on a layover. There is a restaurant and bar on site, and it's a short walk to the coast, which has a beautiful boardwalk.

Visiting "Huaca Pucllana" is absolutely unmissable at any trip to Lima. The awesome great adobe and clay pyramid was built between 200 and 700 AD, representing an important ceremonial and administrative center for the "Lima Culture". Evening visits are highly recommended as the scenic lightings bring a magical atmosphere to the old sacred shrine. Stop at the small museum at its entrance, visit the archaeogical ruins and, if possible, book a table for dinner at "Huaca Pucllana Dining Experience". You won't regret! Previous bookings are a must at all occasions! Enjoy!

This huge “mud pyramid” in the city of Lima is a little dilapidated but nonetheless impressive monument showing the ingenuity of the Inca’s . Not the most interesting of sights on our tour but one that leaves you questioning its purpose & wondering how it looked in its prime - go see for yourself

Huaca Pucllana may not be the largest or most spectacular archaeology site in Lima, but its accessibility within walking distance of many Miraflores hotels makes it the by far the most convenient to visit. You can only visit with a tour guide, but an English tour was beginning just as we arrived; our guide was engaging and knowledgeable. There is a small museum on site which can be visited before or after your tour. It is an active dig, and much of the site has yet to be uncovered, but what has already been revealed is a fascinating view of the Lima Culture from 200-700 A.D. Admission (which includes the tour) is only 15 soles (about $4.50), or half that for senior; tips for the guide will be welcomed.
