Private Conservation area of the atiquipa Lomas

Green and blue in the middle of the desert

In the atiquipa are the lomas most extensive in the country, where there was an excellent olive oil. In the past, the hills covered large stretches of the coast, from Lambayeque to the extreme south of Peru. Today there are very few places remnants of these ecosystems. During the winter and spring, the dense fog coming from the Pacific Ocean condenses in the hills of the atiquipa. That moisture nourishes and gives life to these forests of luxuriant vegetation.

The best time to visit the atiquipa is between July and November, when the hills are at their maximum splendor, but the atiquipa has a lot to offer in other seasons.

There is shelter more than 350 species of plants. Of these, 44 are endemic including the nearly extinct myrtle tree (Myrcianthes ferreyrae), three kinds of cactus (Eulychnia ritteri , Echinopsis chalaensis and Pygmaeocereus familiaris), and two types of flowers, morning glory (Nolana inflata and Nolata aticoana).A common species in the hills is the native tree of Tara (Caesalpinia spinosa), whose pods and seeds are used to produce tannic acid and rubber for national and international markets. And there are those olive trees that make it famous oil produced in the region,
In its surroundings are the beach Jihuay and the paths among the ruins of the ancestors in Puerto Inca.
