  • We will be staying for one night and doing the sandboarding excursion the next day before we take an evening bus to Paracas. Since checkout is at 11, but the sandboarding does not begin until later in the afternoon, will we still be able to use the swimming pool after our 11:00 check out time?

The fine print

Based on local tax laws, Peruvian citizens (and foreigners staying more than 59 days in Peru) must pay an additional fee of 18%. To be exempt from this 18% additional fee (IVA), a copy of the immigration card and passport must be presented.

Please note both documents are required for fee exemption. Guests who are not able to present both documents will be required to pay the fee.

Foreign business travelers who require a printed invoice, will also be charged the additional 18% regardless of the length of their stay in Peru. This fee is not automatically calculated in the total costs for the reservation.

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), additional safety and sanitation measures are in effect at this property.
