By Road from Lima to Paracas

Hi all. We fly to Lima tonight and on Tues morning we are to take a coach from Lima to Paracas as we are doing Nazca Lines flights and Ballestas Islands before returning to Lima by road Wednesday afternoon for our onward flight to Arequipa.

Just wondering if the road to Paracas is open or affected by the flooding.

Thanks in advance for your info.

We fly out next week and had planned to travel by coach to Paracas too. The Cruz Del Sur website had nothing definitive when I last checked. The travel agent we booked with in Peru has said the road is open but much slower. Would you please be able to post how you get on.

I would love to hear from both of you how this trip goes. I would really like to try the gorgeous Hotel Paracas for 3 or 4 nights, but I'm not sure if it's worth the hassle of getting there. Renting a car is NOT an option! lol

Well Ki can report the trip was fine. We left Lima at 7am and arrived here in Paracas at 10.30 a.m.

Great road, follows the coast. A bit of traffic obviously getting out of Lima but after that no hold ups at all.

I would absolutely recommend keeping your cameras handy as we found the landscape fascinating.

Enjoy your journeys !

Crux del sir coach. Can't tell you how much, sorry. We have an independent tour packaged specifically for us so don't have individual priced. Pretty sure you can find prices on their site.
