The entire Paracas National Reserve, particularly the peninsula and the shoreline heading south, in the department of Ica, is one vast playground for mountain biking.

Some of the Mountain Biking routes in Paracas are short and simple, touring the beach resort, while other, more difficult trails cross the desert through sand dunes and up steep slopes. As a rule, cyclists should always take along water and a map of the area. Bikers are advised to cycle together with an expert.

If planning to practice mountain biking in Peru you should follow these recommendations:

  • Always use a helmet, goggles, elbowpads, kneepads and gloves.
  • Cyclists are advised to set out in groups with a minimum of three people. Bring water or rehydrating beverages.
  • Equipment should include one or two inner tubes (due to frequent flat tires) and a set of tools.
  • When choosing the route, bear in mind physical fitness, and do not overexert cyclists in the group.
  • Remember that Mountain biking, like all sports, should provide recreation and not injuries.
  • On the coast: Visitors should bring plenty of water and sunscreen
    In the highlands: Sunscreen is recommended, plus warm clothing. High altitude sickness known locally as soroche can set in at over 2,500 masl. Take precautions by resting the first day, drink plenty of liquids and avoid heavy food and alcohol.
  • In the jungle: Never travel without insect repellent, a raincoat and sunscreen. Long-sleeved shirts and long pants are recommended to ward off insect bites. A yellow fever vaccination is obligatory. There are also vaccinations for malaria, tetanus and Hepatitis A and B, as well as local treatment for leishmaniasis (uta) and malaria.
