Southern Coast & Arequipa

Candelabra Paracas

The Nazca lines are by far the most famous site but there are several great spots to check out in this part of Peru.

Ica is famous for wine and grows the grapes for the eponymous drink of the town of Pisco. Nearby, Paracas has the Ballestas Islands, sometimes compared to a miniature Galápagos.
