We booked the Nasca lines from Huacachina where for $110 US we got a minibus from Huacachina to Nasca, transport to the airport, the flight, transport back to a hotel and access to the hotels facilities for the rest of the day. We caught an overnight bus out of Nasca that night. This was good value because a cheap flight... More

I would like to warn people of the methods of ¨Aero Paracas¨. They pick you up at the bus-station and one of their salesman sits next to the taxi driver, who brings you to the hostel. (In my case his name was Miguel) As tired from the overnight bus trip (from cusco) you just want to have things as easy... More

Loved the experience! We used Aeroparacas company, nice plane and excellent pilot (smooth ride). The flight is about 30 min, and they make sure to hover on each side for each of the sites. The lines and scale are fascinating!! Most of the people on the plane got motion sickness. No vomiting, but not a pleasant feeling. So, one thing... More

It was tottaly worth it! One of the highlights of... More

The Nazca Lines were amazing, but you really have to be prepared to pay more to take the plane, as it is really the best way to see them. The towers only offer limited views, of some of the lines. The plane experience is amazing, but the turbulence can make many people feel sick during and after the flight. I... More

We only stopped through Nasca for the day before heading to Arequipa so we decided to go ahead and do the flight over the Nasca Lines. We thought we got a pretty good deal of $120 for a four person plane, in which everyone would be able to have a window seat. I think that there are cheaper options but... More

The view from the small plane is fantastic. There was a bit of waiting around at the start but the safety precautions were excellent. My tip is to go as early as you can in the morning. The lines show up best when the sun is low on the horizon.

There wasn't much turbulence in the air, but the way the pilot makes sure everyone gets to see the lines means that you are spinning around a lot and tilting to each side a lot. My husband and I greatly enjoyed seeing the amazing lines, but we spent the rest of the day vomiting... Overall it was worth it because... More

March 5, 2014: I took a flight over the Nazca Lines just two days ago with Aero Paracas (www.aeroparacas.com). They were wonderful! I corresponded with them via email several times before my bus trip to Nazca. Their responses were almost immediate--and informative. My friend and I arrived at the airport at about 7:30 a.m. on a Monday and we were... More
