About Paracas

In the current territory of Paracas, it flowered the ancestral civilisation of the culture known as Paracas, during the pre-Incan period. This culture was characterized by its textile art, very advanced for that period, due to its funerary rituals and the cranium trepanations, which were made to remove bad spirits. The Paracas culture is also known for deforming their heads until having them lengthened with a conical shape. Th...e archaeological remains of this culture were found by the archaeologist Julio C. Tello in 1925. In 1820, six ships disembarked at its coast, and were part of the Ejército Libertador, from the Freedom Expedition of Peru, commanded by the General José de San Martín. The name Paracas means “sand rain” due to the strong winds that bring sand remains, typical of this territory (those winds reach speeds of 20 miles/32 kms per hour).

Travel tips for Paracas

-Paracas is located in Paracas Bay, at 168 miles (271 km) from Lima.-Most of the accomodations look for the tourists on the bus terminals to welcome them and promote directly their services (so if you went there without plans, you will have lots of choices waiting for you upon arrival).-You must bring sun lotion, which is essential to resist the sun lightning, but you should also have a kerchief or glasses to protect your eyes from the sand winds (when visiting the outdoors areas).You can get around by foot during the day, walking through the city and visiting the center. For long stretchs we recommend you to “colectivos”, which are shared mini buses. Some of these conveyance can be found at the authorised agencies on the city.It’s not appealing to walk around at night, and even worse on the beach or the outskirts of the city. We recommend you to go on group, it’s always better to travel together with someone. As in any other big city with lots of tourism, suffering an assault or theft is a common risk; take care of your valuable belongings (cameras and cell phones). Don’t you trust the taxi drivers recommendations, because they get a commision for driving customers to specified locals (hotels, restaurants, etc.).
