Itinerario

PALOMINO ISLANDS TOUR

Islas Palomino Islas Palomino

Before starting the tour, we will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the port of Callao. Once there, we will board the boat that will take us to explore these fascinating isles.

Our first destination will be the mythical El Camotal Island, known as the “Peruvian Atlantis,” submerged under the sea after a devastating earthquake.

Next, we will sail towards the majestic San Lorenzo Island, the largest in the country, where you can admire archaeological remains dating back to pre-Inca times and other historical periods.

We will continue to El Frontón Island, known for being a former prison that holds incredible stories and legends. After that, we will proceed to the Cavinzas Islands, an important guano area with impressive caverns and rock formations.

Finally, we will arrive at Palomino Island, an untouched ecosystem home to a large colony of sea lions with which you can swim eventually.

For approximately 50 minutes, we will sail around this island, and we will also be able to see various birds such as Franklin Gulls, Peruvian Pelicans, Guanay Cormorants, Humbolt Penguins, among others. At the end of the excursion, we will drop you back at your hotel.

Remember: The Palomino Islands tour is a good option for travelers with limited time in Lima, as it is only about 50 minutes from Miraflores and 20 minutes from Jorge Chávez Airport.

The Palomino Islands tour is an excellent option to connect with the natural biodiversity of the Peruvian coast in an atmosphere of quiet and scenic beauty.

Where Does the Palomino Islands Tour Take Place?

What Is the Best Season to Take the Palomino Islands Tour?

To visit the Palomino Islands, there is no specific season to choose from as the tour is suitable year-round; the only detail to consider is the number of visitors.

You should remember vacation dates (from December to March) or holidays, as the influx of people will be greater when trying to book a yacht or boat to better enjoy the tour.

  • The trails on some islands are made of uneven earth and are not 100% accessible.
  • To snorkel, you need to swim a little and float using a life jacket. If you have any physical mobility limitation, you will be able to appreciate the marine life from the boat.

Please note that some activities (snorkeling) may be restricted due to your limitation and safety. We recommend checking directly with our sales advisors.
