Seeing the Nazca Lines is something that I have dreamed about for many years, and finally getting to see them from the air was a phenomenal experience. The tour was pre-booked with Aero Palcazu and the whole process of checking in to getting on the plane was pretty painless with only a twenty minute wait. Maybe the great weather helped... More

A trip to Peru would not be complete if one did not over fly this site. Only problem is, my 4th visit, still had to wait for ages. This time 5 hours for our flight as behind in schedule due to hazy weather conditions, so a real RUSH to catch our bus to Arequipa. Quiet stressful. We were not the... More

Mind blogging! Worth every cent to see the lines from the air and question how have they remained so clear and sharp throughout time.

I travelled as part of a group due to see the lines from the viewing platform however as we approached there was an extreme sandstorm due to El Nino and we had to delay the visit until the following day. The viewing platform is a basic structure with steps up to the top; at the front of it a canvas... More

A few things of note here: seeing the lines isn't as simple as booking in advance and showing up at the airport. There were severe delays when we tried doing this due to weather. Not rain or anything, but haze. The planes won't fly unless you can see all of the lines because they want you to get what you... More

Lucky enough to get up on a fine day. Some of the flights has been cancelled due to sandstorms in the previous days. The co-pilot did a great job of pointing out the lines-which was necessary for some of the less outstanding figures. Resorted to my iphone to pictures-larger display and faster action.

Bring a paper bag with you in case you get motion sickness. Do the trip first thing in the morning and make sure you don't eat anything before the flight, just in case you get sick.

The single engine plane ride, the mystery, the beauty of the desert, the lines. All worthwhile and amazing. But the one thing my son and I agreed on is the City itself is largely overlooked. We took the night bus to Nasca from Arequipa and arrived early (5 am early) on Sunday where our host at Hostal Boulevard (Bolognesi Street... More

From other reviews and from talking to other travelers and with staff at our hotel, the best time to see the lines is mid-morning (usually windier in the afternoon in August) and they also recommended that you don't eat for a few hours before your flight time (re: queasiness). Our hotel arranged for a shuttle to take us to the... More

If you can afford it and are interested enough, book a flight. We went to the two Miradors and could hardly see anything. I would only really bother if you are super in the history, and indeed mystery, of it all.
