Destination

Southern Coast of Peru

The southern coast of Peru keeps in its land the deepest secrets and refuses to reveal them.

Nazca offers you places full of mystery, a lot of mysticism and a dose of adventure. Drawings that remain in time, archaeological sites that reveal the life of our ancestors and the most beautiful deserts waiting to be explored; it is the land of wine and Pisco, the national liquor.

Chincha, with its cotton fields from where towns like El Carmen emerge, famous for the expressions of its afro-descendant population.

The Paracas National Reserve, a place where the desert and the Pacific Ocean converge, home to sea lions and countless coastal birds and the famous “Candelabro” await the traveler to be seen and visited.
