Paracas and Huacachina from Lima with Ballestas Islands and Sand Boarding

730 reviews
The coastal and desert regions outside Lima offer a world of outdoor adventure far from the city, but complex bus systems—and, for some visitors, a language barrier­—make exploring a challenge. On this full-day tour, travel in comfort from your Lima hotel and hit Paracas and Huacachina with ease. Spot native marine life in the Paracas National Reserve and try sandboarding on South America’s largest dunes.

I love the Inca history. I read a few books before we came to Peru and I still learned so much about it. The Larco Museum seems to be one of the most known museums for arts of the Inca empire. It's well structured, so when you walk through it you walk through times. Everything is well explained and you have the chance to get a guide, we went for this option. Count for at least half a day when visiting it. Further, it's a bit off the touristic center in Lima, so you'll have to take a cab.

Larco Museum has been in existence for many years. It is worth your time to visit this place. Don't forget to visit the Pre-Columbian erotic section.

There is absolutely no doubt! "Museo Larco" is definitely Lima's Nr. 1 attraction and cannot be missed at any visit to the Peruvian capital city. It is located at a magnificently adapted and restored 18th century mansion in Lima's district of "Pueblo Libre". Its awesome collection covers 5,000 years of the ancient Peruvian history, including jewelry (gold, silver and precious stones), pottery, metals, textiles and so on. "Museo Larco" is also famous and well-known for its gallery on pre-Columbian erotic pottery (housed on two exclusive side rooms). The museum was founded by the prestigious Peruvian Larco family and truly represents the history of passion and enthusiasm of a family for Peru's pre-Columbian art archaeological relics. A visit to "Museo Larco" is essential to all those seeking for a better understanding of Peru, its history, cultures and art. Visit the museum, its shop and restaurant. All unmissable! Enjoy!

Late last year my friend and I visited Museo Larco while in Lima. We paid for the tour guide experience in addition. Gregory was the best tour guide. While we could have learned much of the information by reading plaques, he was able to point out intricate symbols found throughout many of the artifacts that we would have other wise missed. He also answered all of our questions and we therefore learned more about the history of Peru in this one tour than we had in visiting many other Museums. The artifacts are amazing at this museum. We did not see any other collection come even close with the amount of pottery and the gold and silver. I highly recommend a visit and if you can, ask for Gregory!
