Bus or Flight to Paracas, Peru
We were touring around Peru from the north to the south and then east towards Machu Picchu. Our path through Peru has been from Ecuador heading south through Peru with stops in Mancora, Chiclayo, Cajamarca, Trujillo, and Lima, and now we are headed to Paracas. From Paracas, we will head to Nasca, Arequipa, Puno (Lake Titicaca), Cusco, and then Machu Pichu. So we are in Lima now headed to Paracas.
Bus: From Lima to Paracas, Peru: If you are traveling south through Peru, like us, you can catch a nice bus from Lima to Paracas. It is about a 4-hour bus ride. We took Cruz de Sur bus, but no longer recommend them, unless you have less than 20kg checked luggage (They charge per kg.) Now we recommend the Oltursa bus company in Lima departure (Google Map), to their Paracas, Peru company destination (Google Maps). This is a 4-hour bus ride and costs about s/30. Taxis are about s/3 to Paracas destinations and s/8 to San Andreas or Pisco destinations, Collectivos run up and down the cost between Paracas, San Andreas, and Pisco for s/2 per person.
Bus from Nasca to Paracas, Peru: You can catch a nice bus from Nasca to Paracas, Peru. For bus times and prices in English, right click on your Chrome browser and select “Translate into English” at the Oltursa website. You can catch the bus here in Nasca and it will drop you here in Paracas. It takes 10 hours to get to Paracas and costs about s/70. Taxis are about s/3 to Paracas destinations and s/8 to San Andreas or Pisco destinations, Collectivos run up and down the cost between Paracas, San Andreas, and Pisco for s/2 per person.
Flights: If you need to fly into Lima or Paracas, you will get the best price from Skyscanner. The cheapest day of the week to depart from most places in the world is often Tuesday or Wednesday. When you land in Lima, make sure to get Peruvian SIM card so you aren’t paying International roaming rates when you use my Google Maps.

Here is my list of the ==>best live-cheap in paradise locations<== in the world.
I am not offering you these prices. These are just my notes and estimates from the time of my visit and this post. Your costs will likely be drastically different if significant inflation or deflation occurs or the market changes after this post. I will not update these numbers until I am on the ground again here, if ever.
