Lachay, Paraiso Lagoon

Peru Birding Tours designed The Lomas of lima (Hills) tour.  Both places areas unique mist-fed ecosystem of wild plant and animal species. Both places provide species only found in each place and very restricted for these particular habitats.

The hills are a result of a combination of coastal climate factors and subject to peculiar geography called the Yungas. They originate from the primary spurring of the Andes, a location where they contact the clouds which cover the area the majority of the year.

There are two distinct seasons: the humid season (which is the most important), from approximately June to November and the dry season, from December to May.

The first season is emphasized due to its ability to give life to the green vegetation and attract the fauna of the region, while the second season is noted for presenting a drying process that ends when the first fog appears in the fall.

Birds of Lomas de Lachay: Cactus Canastero, Coastal Miner, Thick-billed Miner, Raimondi Yellow-finch all Endemics, Least seedsnipe, Peruvian Meadowlark, Andean Tinamou, Purple-collared woodstar, oasis hummingbird, Peruvian, sheartail, Collared Warbling-finch, Chiguango Thrush, Black-chested Buzzard-Eagle among others

Paraiso wetlands: Chilean Flamingos and several shorebirds.


    We will pick you up from your hotel early morning around 5:00 am and we will drive up north of Lima for about 2 hours. As soon as we arrive there will see the change of habitat for our target species, we will spend time there among the trails and birding areas. We will bring with us our box lunches and drinks to stay longer. We usually back to Lima around 4:00 pm.

  • Hi Omar,

    Im a pretty good birder, but Omar Diaz spotted at least 200 species that I probably would have overlooked! He knows his birds by sight and sound and is very passionate about his chosen profession.

    My Dad is not a birder but was extremely impressed by how well organized and professional the trip was. Thanks Omar and Americo!

    I hope you and your family are doing well.

    RegardsKen Simonite
