General San Martin terminal port  is located in the Department of Ica, province of Pisco, Paracas district and in a town called Punta Pejerrey, 280 Km south of the port of Callao.

The port of San Martin features a 700 -meter long marginal pier with four mooring docks:1,2,3 and 4. The port was built in 1969, is naturally protected from breakers and enjoys a balmy climate nearly all year-round.

Today berths 1 and 2 north of the Terminal are being repaired by the National Port Company (ENAPU), the entity that administers moorings that were affected as a result of the earthquake of 2007.
