Cash | Remember to bring some cash, as you will have to buy your entrance ticket to the Paracas National Park. Also the use of toilets costs 1 PEN at some of the beaches.
First Aid Kit | Accidents can happen without warning. Especially if you are planning to visit the Paracas National Park on a bike or with a scooter, we recommend packing some bandages and disinfectant.
Sunscreen and Hat | Even if you might not feel it due to the wind, the sun in Paracas is strong. Therefore, bring lots of sunscreen and a hat.
Jacket (Windbreaker) | Paracas National Reserve is windy all year round, with stronger winds emerging in the afternoons. Keep yourself warm with a windbreaker. If you can, also pack some layers of cloths to keep you warm while you take a break.
Scarf and Sunglasses | To protect your face from the sand as you are dashing through the windy desert, wear a scarf and glasses.
Water | A bottle of water is essential for your trip to the deserted area, to keep yourself hydrated. Especially if you are planning to go on a bike, make sure to bring enough water with you.
Snacks / Breakfast | Even if there are some vendors in the viewpoints and even a few restaurants in Lagunillas, the prices are way higher than in Paracas town. Therefore we suggest to take your own snacks. And maybe even your breakfast if you are starting early and would like to enjoy your first meal of the day with some nice views.
Offline Maps | Most of the time, there is no cell reception in the Paracas National Reserve, therefore we recommend downloading offline maps of the region in the Google Maps app, to make navigation easier.
Swimwear, Towel and Flip Flops | You can swim in many beaches in the Paracas National Park, so don’t forget your beach essentials.
