The revamp was executed by Peru’s Foreign Trade and Tourism Ministry and verified along 15 km of the northern circuit. These include various spaces and facilities to better accommodate visitors.


The said revamp required an investment of S/18.060 million (about US$5.55 million).


New infrastructure covers control stations, observation points with pergola-covered resting areas, parking spaces, infographics and rest rooms, Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Eduardo Ferreyros detailed.


“It [the venture] aims to guarantee that visitors enjoy the Reserve’s natural wonders, such as its magnificent views and marine biodiversity,” the official said.

Construction of the said works began in February 2016. Paracas Natural Reserve now expects to raise tourist influx to 414,386. In the January-September 2016 period alone, the reserve welcomed 259,906 visitors.


Environment Minister Elsa Galarza highlighted Paracas National Reserve is Peru’s second most-visited protected area due to its excellent state of conservation.


In this sense, she underlined Paracas’ “beautiful beaches, unique desert landscapes, wetlands and hundreds of species.”
