Nicknamed  as The poor man Galapagos the islands are a must-see for all wildlife lovers as they are home to thousands of birds and mammals including penguins, sea lions, inca terns, pelicans, dolphins. Huacachina Oasis located 4 hours south of Lima is the perfect way to keep going after ballestas. Huacachina is South America s only desert oasis.
