The Ballestas Islands include small group of islands close to Paracas, situated just within the region of Ica. And because it’s referred to as the Poor Man’s Galapagos, we were so there! Visiting the Islas Ballestas is one of the highlights of this area and attracts tourists year around. These beautiful islands are actually rock formations, serving as the area’s most significant sanctuary for marine life. Bird species such as the guanayguano bird is the most important guano producing in the Peruvian coast. (We’re talking bird poop folks!) Also, the Blue-Footed Booby reside in the many islands and are popular among the tourists. Other known species are Humboldt Penguins, two different species of seals and the sea lions all call the Ballestas home.
