This ceremonial place of the Nazca culture is big. You can easily walk around for an hour to take it in. But there's no explanation in written form on site. So chose a good guide who knows something about it an can tell you what this place was made for (ceremonies, not living) and why it was abandoned (earthquake) and... More

Usually combined with other tours, there isn't much to see but to imagine this is a small corner of what used to be an immense ancient admin center. If you have time, it's worth swinging by as part of the tour.

Well worth a visit . The group loved this visit and the site was quiet and not to busy so saw and learnt a lot. Our guide was very informative.

If you take the dune buggy, you’ll go there which is very impressive. Incas people were capable of almost anything. Worth to see and take pictures.

Just arrived the place look spectacular. Clear marked paths to follow but the paths only allow to visit a tiny portion of this beautiful citadel. More paths are needed, for example to top of main pyramid or around the whole complex

How to get three. Coming from Nazca DO NOT take the turning right signposted to Cahuachi a few hundred metres after the airport which will have been on your left. That road is rough with several turnings that could mislead you. Its also 25km of rough road, very rough in parts. Instead continue for approximately 5 km and take the... More

This used to be the city center for cultures living in the Nazca region, and was quite important - that's why this is built on a hill and when you climb up, you can see pretty far. The front of the attraction has been refurbished and reconstructed, which makes it look nice. However, once you get to the top/in the... More

I am not one to get too excited about organised tours. We have been travelling for two years now and was so surprised by the quality of this Alas Peruanas 'sand buggy' tour I feel compelled to highlight it. A friend came on holiday to visit us travelling around Peru so, mainly as he was joining us, I looked for... More
