A Trip to Ballestas Islands in Peru

We went to visit Lima Peru back in March 2019 just for 5 days. When I checked that we could do this one day trip to the Ballesta Island I didn’t think twice. We took a speed boat in the town of Paracas.

One of the first sights is the Candelabro

The Ballestas Islands are mostly made of rocks formations and they are a sanctuary for marine bird and mammals.

Humboldt Penguin

Inca terns, Peruvian Bobby, Blue-footed Bobby and more….

Sea Wolves or South American Sea Lions

It is impressive how the pop of all these birds ” guano” is such a valuable resource in this area. Guano it is a valuable fertilizare resource, use locally and exported all over the world.

After the amazing boat tour at the Ballesta Island, you can get a plate of delicious Ceviche and then head to Huacachina Village for an exhilarating dune buggy and sand boarding experience.

Check out my next post for the dune buggy and sand boarding experience.

Details of a Rainy Weekend at the Beach

When you go to the beach, specially if you are staying during a weekend, you want blue skies and a sunny warm day. You will love to have clear waters and I guess you want to be able to sunbathe a little, go to the water to cool off, maybe read a book and because every is so crispy and perfect you don’t have to worry about grey skies, wind, lightning or packing all your beach things in a few seconds because a mini storm is going to happen anytime while you are there. Right? We don’t want to deal with rain during our beach day, at least that is the way I am.

But few weekends back we had a reservation at a hotel in Belleair Beach and the weather did not cooperate at all for the perfect picture that we all want for a beach day. Instead we had grey skies all weekend and we constantly had to run back to the hotel because of rain and wind. In the short times when the rain stopped I did want I like the best… document and collect moments, beauty in simplicity.
