Explore the diverse marine life and rich flora and fauna of the Bellestas Islands and the Paracas Reserve. On this sailing excursion, international sailing champion and Local Guide Diego will take you on a boat ride around the Bellestas Islands. Along the way, you’ll witness the incredible wildlife, such as sea lions and Humboldt penguins. Upon arrival at the Paracas Reserve, Diego will show you around one of the region’s most beautiful and diverse national parks. In the reserve, you'll get to visit a scallop farm where you can dive for scallops and taste them, as well. After a seaside lunch, Diego will take you on a Dune Buggie through the unique coastal desert of the reserve. Through this action-packed day, you'll experience plenty of thrills and surprises along the way, all with the backdrop of the outstanding Paracas National Reserve.

Born and raised in Lima, I moved to Germany to study business and marketing. Following the traditional business path, I began working in sales and marketing at a multinational company, but realized that going to work every day felt more like a chore. I decided it was time I pursued my two passions: entrepreneurship and travel. I started my travel company in 2009 and have since loved every day of my job. Having grown up in Peru, I understand the beauty that lives within the land, and I absolutely love showing it to others. On each trip I lead, I get to share my world while also meeting new people and learning new things. I invite you to come to Peru and explore the soul of my country, together.
