overview / intro

For the final trip in Peru, we headed a bit south of Lima and Ica. We saw the Paracas National Park and shoreline. We quickly saw some of it the first weekend we were in Peru, so it was a fitting end trip too.

This time however we took a boat ride to see the shoreline, some shipwrecks, and rock formations. There are some islands that are like mini versions of the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador. After the boat ride was a dune buggy adventure to see more of the park from the interior and Instagram worthy beaches and shorelines.

The next day we went to Nazca. There are some of the historic Nazca lines near a highway, so you can climb a watchtower and see them. The rest are quite a bit away from anything, so you need to have a helicopter ride. We opted out of that option this time.

Nice to see what you have visited, Peru is quite an interesting country to say the least. Hope that Catia's family is safe from the unrest in Lima these days. Thanks for sharing, Ben
