The Dive

“Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

We will never know if the pelican got the fish in this attempt, but I am sure it will try again and again until it catch something.

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.
