This morning we enjoy breakfast around 9 Am we will drive in private transport to the Harbor of Paracas ( about 35 min )from where we go to the islands of Ballestas at 10 am , with hundreds of sea lions and birds and beautiful rock formations. They are therefore sometimes compared to the small Galapagos Islands. The most common animals are seals, pelicans, cormorants, gannets, penguins, and other bird species that use the rocks as a breeding and resting place. A large amount of bird droppings lures millions of fish, which in turn serve as food for the birds, but which have also been used as fertilizers for years. This was one of the largest export products in Peru! Speedboat to the islands with an English-speaking guide, who knows a lot about the animals. To protect the sensitive ecosystem, you cannot enter the islands themselves. The boat go past the 100 m high “Candlestick”, a large drawing in the desert sand on a hill along the coast.
