Peru Series (3) Paracas, Islas Ballestas and Huacachina 祕魯系列 (3) 帕拉卡斯、鳥島和瓦卡奇納

Paracas is the pier for boats to Islas Ballestas and the Reserva Nacional de Paracas. Since the boat trip starts early in the morning, would be nice to combine with Huacachina and have a day trip from Lima!

帕拉卡斯(Paracas)是前往鳥島(Islas Ballestas)和帕拉卡斯國家保護公園(Reserva Nacional de Paracas)的港口。因為船班很早就開了,所以可以考慮和瓦卡奇納(Huacachina)結合、安排由利馬(Lima)出發的一日遊行程。
