Pisco Travel Guide

Pisco is a city in the Ica Region of Peru, the capital of the Pisco Province. The city is only 28 feet above sea level. Pisco originally prospered because of its nearby vineyards, and is the namesake of the Peruvian grape liquor, pisco.

The town eventually gave its name to Peru's Brandy which was later used as the most important ingredient of the world - famed "Pisco Sour".

In Pisco, just a little bit out of the way, you will come accross the hotel Paracas beach resort. From here tours to the Ballestas Islands leave (the Ballestas islands have been deemed the little Galapagos of Peru).

The area is habitually visited because of the concentration of marine animals and birds at the Paracas National Reserve, or the Peruvian Galapagos. At the reserve there are the Ballestas Islands, which are off limits to people, but boat tours can get close. The Chincha Islands are also near its coast. On the islands there are many birds, including pelicans, penguins, cormorants, Peruvian boobies and Inca terns. There are also sea lions, turtles, dolphins, and whales.
