PERU Coastal Birding Day Trip

Peru-coast-3 This one-day trip is a final day add-on for our Amazon Riverboat Cruise.

Why don’t we include it in the Amazon itinerary and price?

Not everyone will be able to or want to join the day trip. Joining will depend upon your flight schedule. Most, but not all flights depart Lima late at night. Since we return to the airport after dinner, if you have an earlier flight you would not make it. Also, some people prefer to either rest on the last day or visit colonial Lima rather than go birding.

The coastal birding trip will begin after breakfast. Boarding our bus at 7:00AM we’ll drive one hour south to Pucusana. Here we will enjoy the beautiful Inca Tern as we search for Humbolt Penguins, Guanay Cormorants, Peruvian Pelicans, Belcher’s Gulls and Surf Cinclodes. Along the beach we’ll seek Gray Gulls and shorbirds, while in the wetland areas we look for Coastal Miner, Many-colored Rush Tyrant, White-tufted Grebe, Great Grebe, Gray-hooded Gull, Andean Coot, Andean Ruddy Duck and maybe even Plumbeous Rail!
