Great menu, awesome food and service. Probably the best in Paracas. Highly recommend their pizza and brownie. Had an awesome local IPA beer.

Another recommendation of my parents. I think they're fitter than we were, as my wife and I had quite some altitude problems getting up. But the camp below the icy part was perfect to get at least used to it. Gustavo was an incredible guide....More

Climbing Misti volcano can be demanding if you are not used to physical activity and not used to the city's altitude. Usually, you will need 2 days. Best time to climb it is August to November. The views are amazing.
