We visited as a family of 4 (13 and 11). To be honest, I was expecting a quick trip across the dunes for some sand boarding. What we got instead was 30 minutes of scream filled madness up, down, across and, err, sideways across dunes ranging from mildly daunting to seriously big in a dune buggy, plus a bit of... More

Stopped here on a whim with a group because we were curious. The hostess agreed to let us have a brief (30 min) sand buggy ride for 60 soles each person. We got a bonus slide down a large dune on a sandboard. Great experience and highly recommended.

Safe and exciting. The pilot of the buggy I was in had 20 years experience in those dunes. We were a group of 11 people that included teens and children so we were a caravan of three buggies. They picked up us at 9 am from the hotel in a van, so we hit the dunes with little sun and... More

Excellent guides, amazing experience - definitely do not miss this! Bring water and a camera. They will offer to take pictures of your group with the camera you bring, and they do a great job (no extra fee). The buggy ride is comparable to riding a roller coaster! We booked through our hotel the day before, and they came and... More

This was the highlight of our family trip to Peru. We got the recommendation from the DoubleTree resort in Paracas. We were a mixed group aged between 20 and 82. Mario, the owner who builds these buggies and has been in the business for over 20 years, was very helpful and customized the trips based on the passengers (we had... More

The dune buggies were in perfect condition and the sand surfing was a great touch. Drivers and staff were excellent. Couldn't have asked for more!

We were picked up by the company from our hotel. Our trip to the dunes started as soon as we got to their place and lasted about 3 hours. Our guide/driver was very friendly and knowledgeable, and made sure we were safe and comfortable. He also took many pictures for us. The ride itself was very fun and the dunes... More

I just got back from Peru and this place was one of the highlights of my trip. I went with my 2 kids, 7 and 11, and they loved it! The tour took approx one hour, we rode with Mario, he took us thru the desert and then took us sandboarding. We found them when we were driving down the... More

We traveled all over Peru this summer for three weeks and this dune buggy tour of the sand dunes was one of our highlights. It was a combination of a roller-coaster like ride on the sand dunes, a sand sledding experience, and gorgeous views of the dunes at sunset.

Paracas sand buggying and boarding is offered by a company called Adrenarena. They do not really have an office in Paracas and tours are sold through agencies. However am sure you can call them directly to arrange something. We paid 75 soles pp for a 2 seater buggy ride with sand boarding. If you go on an 8 person buggy... More
