Peru - South Coast (Chapter)
This is the South Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Peru guidebook.

- decipher the mysteries of the Nazca Lines from an overflight or a tour on terra firma
- observe sea lions and birdlife, and dodge guano on a boat trip to the Islas Ballestas
- watch the sun set atop a giant sand dune overlooking the desert oasis of Huacachina
- restaurants & accommodations
Coverage includes: Pucusana, Asia, Cañete & Cerro Azul, Lunahuaná, Chincha, Pisco, Paracas (El Chaco), Ica, Huacachina, Palpa, Nazca & Around, Chala, Camaná, Mollendo, Moquegua, Ilo and Tacna.
