Overview

Paracas National Reserve

 

It is located in one of the most deserted points of the Peruvian coast, in the department of Ica, and has an area of ??335,000 hectares – about 200,000 in the Pacific Ocean. The Paracas peninsula is located in an exceptionally rich maritime area, whose outcrops of extremely cold waters produce a great abundance of plankton that nourishes fish, crustaceans and mollusks.
Due to its importance as a place of rest and food for migratory species in 1991, it was elevated to the category of Regional Reserve of the Hemispheric Network for shorebirds (currently the “Wetlands for the Americas” Program).
The climate is typical of the formation of the subtropical desert, that is, there is approximately a difference of 6 to 8 ° C in the average temperature of the hottest and coldest month. In February and August, respectively, it is 22 ° C and 15.5 ° C, the annual average being 18.7 ° C. The precipitation is very poor, with the annual average of 1.83 mm, the relative humidity is of the order of 82%, with 83% in winter.

The prevailing winds are south and southwest, reaching an average speed of 14.9 km / h; However, they can reach 32 km / h, being the strongest on the coast, known as “Paracas”.

With a mild climate and an annual average of 22 degrees Celsius and sun almost constantly, with low humidity, the stay is pleasant.
