Venture to the exciting city of Lima, just a 45-minute drive from the port city of Callao. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the historical city center of Lima is known as the King of Kings. Visit the Main Square located in the heart of downtown, to view the Government Palace, the Town Hall, the Bishop’s Palace with its beautiful balconies and the Cathedral of Lima.
The Ballestas Islands are an offshore cluster of rocky outcroppings teeming with seabirds, penguins, sea lions, dolphins and other wildlife.
Many visitors in Pisco take the opportunity to take a scenic flight over the huge, mysterious Nazca Lines pictographs etched into the nearby desert surface 2,000 years ago. And still more belly up to a bar to sample a Pisco Sour cocktail made with the Pisco bandy distilled from locally grown grapes.
Punta Islay is on the Southern Peruvian Coast and is a crucial environment supporting prolific populations of birds. The town is near the important Pacific seaport of Matarani, which provides easy access to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Arequipa Inland.
Shaped like an exuberant sea horse standing on its head, Mayotte is the most southerly and oldest of the Comoros Islands with relatively low, rounded hills and a prominent circling coral reef.
Arica enjoys a climate as dry as that of the Sahara, but without the temperature extremes. Nearby Lauca National Park offers views of volcanos, lakes and plentiful altiplano wildlife such as llamas, vicunas, alpacas and guanacos.
Iquique’s economy is supported by the fishing industry but drive outside the city into the desert and you can find interesting well-preserved ghost towns that remain from the nitrate industry’s hey-day.
Antogafasta is a busy port by the arid and mysterious Desert of Northern Chile. With the wealth generated by minerals flowing from the barren land, they’ve managed to build a pleasant town of parks and plazas, conquering for a while, the emptiness beyond.
Isla Pan De Azucar is a unique ecosystem where flora and fauna are sustained by the Camanchaca mists from the sea. Cactuses thrive here and on the island, breeding colonies of sea lions, sea otters, pelicans and Humboldt penguins lounge in protected peace.
