Ir a este lugar es imperdible cuando llegas a Paracas, precios al alcance, ir temprano ya que cuando hay mareas altas hay que esperar para salir. more »Going to this place is a must when you arrive in Paracas, prices within reach, go early since when there are high tides you have to wait to get out.
