Paracas and Islas Ballestas

After being in Huaraz and trekking the Cordillera Blanca in really low temperatures I headed straight back for the nice weather in Huacachina. From the hostel I stayed in I booked a half-day trip to Paracas and Ballestas Islands. A very interesting place for bird and wildlife watchers. You can spot there animals such as sea lions, penguins and thousands of different bird species. On the way to the islands, on the paracas peninsula, you can see El Candelabro, a large-scale geoglyph. The mystery as to the origins of this sign is up until now still unknown.
