paracas EXPEDITION

Paracas is one of the most important protected natural areas along the coast, so one important thing is to have respectful behaviour with the environment and follow the instructions for sustainable visits in a natural area using the marked trails.
At the Paracas National Reserve, you will enjoy the amazing desert views, aside from the relaxation of the beaches.

Moreover, the routes we will do apart from the regular take us to some other places not on the tourist map, going to some viewpoints especially early in the morning and late afternoon and if timing helps we could reach some fishermen’s activities.

the trip SUGGESTED ITINERARY

DAY 1: Leave the hotel at 7:00 am.
Driving south first stop at Cerro Azul beach, after a break and some shootings we continue south arriving around 2 pm at the hotel. At 3pm we will take the buggy to the desert and the local oases. Back at the end of the day to Paracas.

what kind of photos we MAY take?

Landscapes, some birds, people, and local activities

what lenses are best for this trip?

A wide angle for landscapes (under 24 mm).
A tele if you want to shoot birds or some action (200 mm +).
A macro if you like to shoot textures and any kind of details.
A zoom 24-70 / 24-105 / 35-150 mm good for multi use.
On sunny days a ND2 or polarized filter, and a ND16 or ND1000 if we are in a season of sunsets and you want to shoot some long exposure. Tripod recommended.

when is best?

The trip can be done for the whole year

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO BRING?

Basically in summer (Dec-Apr) you must use sunscreen and fresh clothes. Paracas temperatures are on average 24-32C and very sunny days.
During winter (Jul-Oct) long sleeves and a wind vest for temperatures of 16-18C on the day but mostly clear, at night temperature descends to under 15 C. In these months is common to have some days with very strong winds, reducing the options of shooting and avoiding the navigation. If that happens we must make some changes to itinerary. And is helpful to have a windvest.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

This is a photo trip in natural and protected areas, we will make stops along the way to hike a bit to take a look around, is not more than 30 minutes each time. In case you are not able to walk too much please tell us to modify the original plan.
