At 9:30 am our first stop will be at the marina dock, and it will wait for us to embark to the Ballestas Islands. Aboard the gliders we will immerse ourselves in the fascinating marine world for approximately two hours. We will begin our tour stopping at the figure engraved in the sand known as “The Candelabra”, where our guide will explain the different theories about its function. We will continue sailing with the sea breeze above us until we reach the Islands, where we will be surrounded by abundant marine life. Sea lions, Humboldt penguins, a variety of guano birds and, with luck, some curious dolphins will await us. You won't want to stop capturing these moments with your camera! Then we will do Ceviche cooking classes, an emblematic dish of Peru, and we will taste it. Later we will go to Ica on a tour of approximately one hour until we reach the “10 Acres” restaurant and winery, where we will enjoy our lunch and participate in an exquisite and fun tasting of local wines and piscos. Then, we will continue to the Huacachina Oasis. There we will get off the vehicle to board the tubulars, which will take us to explore the endless dunes of Ica from top to bottom. We will also enjoy the exciting experience of sliding with sandboards from the top of the dunes. After this adrenaline-filled experience, you'll have plenty of time to wander around the oasis, take photos, and do some final shopping. 5:30 p.m. we begin the trip home. We'll then make our way back to Lima and arrive at 10:30 pm.
