Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Do it as a day trip from another city

Liked: Ballatas Island tour was good and there was some great seafood on offer (try a restaurant called Delfin)

Disliked: Avoid the stock standard National Reserve tour - it is pointless, and a waste of time. Definitely only needed one night in this town.

Customer Travel Tip: Please think nothing and do nothing! Only relax your mind and soul!

Liked: I like here because you can just chill out thinking nothing. So luxury to be able to feel you have nothing to do. But also you can go to Isla Ballestas, relax at the beach, eat out. I just love being in Paracas.

Disliked: I couldn't fine nuts and dried fruits...., not so many options at market.
