I was in Paracas for two days and I really wanted to check out the Reserve. I came across Playa Rojas tours and they have ATVs and buggies. I choose to go on ATV and I had the best time! It was an absolutely amazing...More
I took the cheapest option and rented a bike early in the morning to Paracas National Reserve, costed me 25 soles for 24 hours. The red sand beach was my main destination and I didn't take a ride around whole Reserve, but getting there I...More

This is famous for its red sand beach within the Paracas National Reserve. The red sand was produced by ancient volcanoes under the ocean. The best way to see this beach is from the cliff above. Well worth a visit.

We drove from Lima to Paracas and Nazca. The roads are well paved, and have no traffic. It terms of safety, they are safe except for the police (!!): we were pulled to the side at a "check point" and forced to a US$100 pay off for not having our lights on in the middle of a sunny day! Mind you, our car had daylight running lights, and the light setting was on "auto", but not "on". He took our driver's licenses and our passports, then told us that unless we pay him he will not return our documents. It was the end of a 3 week trip and we didn't want to deal with it. We paid him off and went on our way.

DIY Paracas Reserve without a car? (2 Replies)
Is it possible to see the Paracas reserve without neither a tour or car? I would like to spend time at the Playa de Mina, see the Catedral, la Playa Roja, and La Boveda, and see the cave there. I don't see any tours that actually stop in all these places or allow for both viewing and time at the beach. Is it possible to just get a taxi to Lagunillas and then from there find guides or taxi's to take you to the different viewpoints? Or are any of them walking distance from each other to do a...More

This is a bad idea, and is not viable. There are significant distances between these locations.
