  • Timely pick up by a very infomitive guide. We had a very nice van to the fishing village which included a stop for some wonderful fresh bread right out of baking ovens along the way.
    The fish market and the boat ride around an island with many birds and sea life sightings made the day.

  • Spent a relaxing Sunday morning observing life in this small fishing village that is off the beaten track and not the usual shore excursion offered by cruise lines. We were picked up on time by Nilton and driver Hugo and driven in a nice, air-conditioned van to Pucusana. Along the way we stopped at a couple of view points and Nilton told us about life in Lima and Peru, the problems the inhabitants face with water shortages while living next to an ocean, and we were able to ask him questions. Nilton spoke perfect English and had lived in the US so was easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about problems facing environmentalists today. When we arrived we boarded a small motor boat and went out to an island teeming with several species of birds, including the inca tern and the rate Humboldt penguin. Since we were the only passengers that day, and since my husband is a nature photographer, the boatman was very accommodating to our requests to stay longer in a spot or go back to another one for a better photo. After the boat trip, we walked along the wharf, watching families out for a Sunday of fun before returning to our hotel. A most enjoyable day!
