Paracas National Reserve is a stunning ecological reserve located in the coastal desert. This excursion begins with a visit to the interpretive site to learn about all the different species that are protected in this area and the evolution of this part of the coast, which is considered a paradise for geologists.
Your next stop will be at the Red Beach—a wonderful and unique beach in the National Reserve. It is the only beach with red sand and its shoreline is populated with seabirds.
On this excursion you'll observe different desert landscapes: Supay Beach, notable for its superb cliffs that formed during the Eocene Epoch (56 to 33.9 million years ago), which will show you sequences of horizontal layers, and the Cathedral, a natural rocky formation created by wind erosion. All the soil in the reserve is formed by marine sediments, and your last stop will be a chance to see prehistoric fossils.
