Some more pictures from the Peru trip, this time Ballestas Islands.
We went there on our way from Lima to Cusco, there are day trips from Lima to visit Ballestas islands!
We drove to a town called Paracas and then it was a boat ride to visit the islands.
Bumpy boat ride for about 3 hours ! Ballestas islands is a national park that contains one of the highest concentrations of marine birds in the world!
The humboldt Penguins are super cute..
And they love to pose 🙂
And the sea lions… lazing around…
Never saw so many together…
The numerous pelicans..
Amusingly, they are famous as poor man’s Galapagos!!
The Paracas Candelabra geoglyph with unknown origin…
And the close-up of this enormous hillside etching, it’s believed to date back to 200 BC
The views are great! If you can spare a day from Lima, worth a visit!
