Ballestas Islands

Sometimes called the Peruvian Galapagos Islands these islands are perhaps not the highlight of most trips to Peru but nevertheless do surprise a lot of visitors with its sights. The amount of wildlife one sees here on a 2 hour boat ride few people will enjoy in a full day on the Galapagos. Penguins, Sea lions, hundreds of Sea birds and even Dolphins and Condors are all part of the wildlife viewing buffet offered by these tiny islands.
