Paracas: beaches, islands & National Reserve

After a thrilling time in the desert we continued north to Paracas, a little beach/fishing town with a beautiful natural reserve. I didn’t have high expectations but the fact that they had a restaurant with a vegan menu excited me. Things were off to a rocky start when we arrived at night and I couldn’t find my hotel.
