Activities in Paracas, Ica, Peru.

Welcome to the ultimate playground. Paracas is full of different activities to try and enjoy. And of course, at Perukite we are all here to lead you to your next adventure.

More than kiting. Paracas nature reserve spans desert, ocean, islands and the Paracas Peninsula making this a must-see in Peru. We didn’t choose Paracas JUST for its epic kiting and it’s high wind stats. Paracas has a lot to offer for all adventurers. We wanted a location that has something for everyone IN and OUT of the water so you can enjoy all of Paracas.

When you’re not kiting there are so many other activities to enjoy. Such as paragliding over dramatic landscape, hiking over the reserve, sightseeing or simply enjoy the wild nature. For the watersport enthusiasts you can choose between wakeboarding, surfing, sailing, paddling, jet-skiing – you name it! And of course, you can go sandboarding and race across the desert in dune buggies in Huacachina. A world-class destination with sand slopes up to 500 meters high.

There truly is something for everyone in Paracas.


Paracas, meaning ‘Raining Sand’ in Quechua, is a small charming seaside town on the edge of a large National Park. Situated 250 km south of Lima on Peru’s west coast. It’s known for beaches, like El Chaco, set on sheltered Paracas Bay. Also known for its stunning wildlife, incredible culture and delicious cuisine. Paracas town is a launch point for the uninhabited Ballestas Islands. Which is home to sea lions, pelicans, flamingos and Humboldt penguins. Otherwise known as the “poor man’s Galapagos.” Because it only costs 50 soles for a 2-hour boat ride.
