Romance & Special Celebrations
When visiting Peru with Venturia, you’ll be amazed at how much you can see and do in just 3 days, and this wonderful Short Break to the Peruvian Coast is no exception. Your destination is Paracas, a fascinating part of Peru where sand dunes meet ocean waters, ancient history awaits nearby and a surprising amount of wildlife also abounds.
From Lima then, you’ll be taken to Paracas in a private vehicle where you can check in to your luxury Hotel and enjoy an afternoon at leisure, free to explore the coastline and its dramatic rugged bay. Day 2 begins with a scenic motorboat tour to the Ballestas Islands, known for their large numbers of sea lions, seabirds and even Humboldt Penguins.
From here it’s onwards to witness one of the great marvels of the ancient world, with a stunning overflight above the Nazca Lines. To see these giant carved monuments in the desert from the air is an unforgettable experience, one of the highlights of Peru. Before returning to Lima, there is still time for a champagne cruise through Paracas Bay aboard a luxury yacht, followed by a private transfer back to the capital.
Whether you have just landed in Lima or are taking this Short Break to the Peruvian Coast as part of a wider tour, on day 1 a private vehicle will take you from either Lima Airport or your hotel to the desert region of Paracas, a 4-hour drive.
Upon arrival, check in at Hotel Paracas, a Luxury Collection Resort and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. You can begin to explore the bays and beaches of Paracas this afternoon or simply admire the sea views from the hotel’s pool, sun terrace or your private balcony.
There are many wildlife encounters and ancient wonders to be had in Peru, and today you’ll visit one of them, the Nazca Lines.
One of South America’s top ancient wonders awaits with an unforgettable overflight above the Nazca Lines. Visible only from the air, the giant sand carvings of Nazca simply must be seen to be believed, and are still full of mysteries to this day.
What better way to round off your time on the Peruvian coast, than a wine-hosted luxury yacht tour along Paracas Bay? Before being driven back to Lima then, you can tuck into small bites and beverages as you sail aboard your first-class vessel, on the lookout for resident marine life, ancient cliff carvings, and admiring those coastal views.

Departing from the private dock of the hotel, a morning motorboat tour will take you first to the Ballestas Islands. These rocky outcrops are known for their huge populations of seabirds and sea lions, marine otters and ever-lovable Humboldt Penguins – a charming natural spectacle.
Finally, as your trip draws to an end, a private vehicle will be on-hand to take you to Lima Airport, ready for your onward flight home.
For a modern luxury resort overlooking the Peruvian coast, with a spa and swimming pools, multiple restaurants and spacious suites, Hotel Paracas in the Paracas National Reserve is tough to top.
