What will make your trip extra special is the less touristy areas of Lima, where you will discover the colorful and exotic markets that are filled with small shops owned by people from the Andes and the Amazon of Peru. In addition, you will try all of the best local cuisines! For extra fun, we have also  added adventure to your trip with a visit to Ballestas Islands on a boat tour and the National Reserve of Paracas, both located about 3.5 hours from Lima. Because we work closely with our nonprofit sister organization, Reciprocity NGO, your trip will help support the social projects in shanty towns of Lima.

The name Pachacamac is traditionally Inca/Quechua and means "Earth's Creator."
