Gorgeous Beach Cliffs
Apr 2021 • Solo
This beach area is with stopping on your drive through the preserve. The red sand and cliffs are stunning. Not much wildlife though.

Landscape

Great looking beach. No one there and I am not sure if it’s possible to just let there or if it’s supposed to be only to look and not to lay there. Amazing landscape.

The red beach is some what off the beaten path, very rustic yet scenic view of the coastline must visit the local restaurants nearby a real treat!

different opinion - Bad treatment
Oct 2019
The company at their basic services was great: good value for money. we did the Hucachina buggy through them, and they even picked us from the Pisco airport, ket us leave our luggage at the hotel and them took as to the buggy. the next day they picked us up from the hotel to the Ballestras islands, which was also very good.

The same day we ordered through them a private transport from Paracas to Lima because I felt very bad: a nightmare!
first, the car didn't have Air Condition. .
When I told Playa roja about it, they called the driver and he confirmed he will fill gas for the cold only a few days later. they had the impertinence to tell me that now the driver will turn it when.
I answered that I heard them talking over the phone and they shouldn't treat me as an idiot. ( I speak fluent Spanish)
They immediately backed off.
The 2nd issue was the payment to the driver: we agreed on 350 sol, I paid 200 at the beginning and said I will pay 150 at the end. of course I didnt want to pay for a non-AC car.
They should have paid the driver and they simply ignored him and his calls. I had to call from my number so they would answer me and I transferred the call to him.
They started to make excused that I didn't said I want an AC car (they day before we had one, so why should I mention that?) then they said the ride to Lima is longer and I get a basic car - nonsense, even Cruz del Sur bus have AC.
At the end I had to wait with the poor driver until they transferred him 100 sol. (I paid him the other 50, I didnt have the energy to fight for another 50 soles)

As a company to do the basic adventures they were good. I think that a really good company values in the EXTRA. You dont argue with the costumer who feels bad physically, you don't lie to him and treat him like an idiot, and you should not treat lower people (ie the driver) as trash - which is what they did when they didnt answer

לאחר התגובה המפורטת באנגלית, בעברית אכתוב כי החברה עצמה בסדר לדברים הבסיסיים, בכל מה שמעבר היחס שלהם אליי ולנהג היה פשוט מחפיר- אל תלכו אליהם, אני נגד לעודד התעמרות בחלשים. יש הרבה חברות וכולן עושות אותו דבר. הלוואי שהם ילמדו להתייחס יפה לזוטרים מהם.

Nice beach
Aug 2019 • Family
Went to this national reserve park, where a local guide took my family in his car. It is an interesting place with desert, fossils, rock formations and beaches and good views. Lunch at the beach side was a highlight. And the food is the best we have managed to find in Paracas.

Disappointing
Feb 2019 • Couples
We stopped at a couple of places in the reserve and this was the most disappointing. I was more impressed by the black beach near the Cathedral.
