Description Tour to the Paracas Reserve in Ica

With the “Tour to the Paracas Reserve in Ica”, you can visit in Ica the Interpretation Center of the reserve, the Cathedral, the Supay Beach viewpoint, the Paracas Peninsula, Yumaque beach, Red beach and Lagunillas beach. The entire Paracas Reserve and its protected area.

THE PARACAS NATIONAL RESERVE is a protected area of Peru located in the province of Pisco, in the department of Ica. It was declared as such on September 25, 1975 and was created in order to conserve a portion of the sea and the desert of Peru, giving protection to the various species of wild flora and fauna that live there.

It preserves a representative sample of the marine ecosystems of the cold sea of the Peruvian Current or Humboldt Current, considered by specialists as the most productive on Earth, in addition to maintaining the environments used by a wide variety of migratory species for food and shelter during their long annual journeys.

The sea is favored by the microcurrents of water, a fact that attracts a large number of fish, other species in the area and fish farmers. These upwelling currents bring nutrients from the seabed, fertilizing the surface waters, this leads to an overproduction of phytoplankton, which biologists know as high primary productivity.
