In the morning we follow the Pan American Highway north to Pisco. The Pan American runs all the way from Argentina to Canada. En route we stop for lunch in the desert and have a go at sand-boarding, including a 4x4 beach buggy ride which is an exhilarating experience.

This small coastal port town is renowned for its production of Pisco, the white grape brandy produced in the region. They say 'If you haven’t tried the national drink, Pisco Sour, then this is the place to do it!' And boy do we do it.. Tonight we have an evening on the town and enjoy the Peruvian seafood as well as enjoy a few more Pisco sours at the local bars.

Here we also visit the Ballestas Islands, where we see sea lions, penguins and a variety of other birds. A place rich in sea mammals.
