Nadar con los lobos marinos una experiencia increíble, con información durante el recorrido. Ideal si realizas una escala en Lima o quieres hacer algo cerca de Lima. Grabe una experiencia del viaje y la subiré a mi canal de YouTube en un par de semanas.

AMAZING!! I can't describe in words how memorable was the experience, since the moment you get to the port to the end you are going to feel amaze by the beauty of the place and the friendly staff. I was able to watch a bird migration, see pingüinos and feel the nose and whiskers of the sea lions on my toes. Amazing😍

Rare opportunity and extremely worthwhile. Was a great way to start the day. Will interact with several other travelers to share stories, as well as gain some unique knowledge of Peru.
