This is the most enjoyable part of our Ilocandia tour! The SAND DUNES in Laoag! For PHP2,500, my family of four were able to enjoy the sand dunes for one (1) hour. That's the regular fare for four however if you are only two or three just negotiate and asked for a discount so you could avail their 4x4 ride... More

It was soooo fun...Haggling is very essential if you only travel by two. Good thing I was kinda good at it. We were given a chance to do the 4x4 with a sand boarding for just P1.6. It was arrange for just 30 mins but it turned out to be about an hour. It was a great and unforgettable experience.

It's more like you're in a dessert kinda feeling. So we rent a 4x4 jeep just to experience the sandunes has to offer!. At first the ride was smooth and no sign of excitement, but wait until you will be on the peak of the sand, adrenaline rush is all over me it feels like riding on a roller coaster... More

One of the best memories of our Ilocos trip is the 4x4 adventure ride. Our group, ages ranging from 14-70 enjoyed this trip! It was such fun and highly recommended. There were 7 of us and the driver agreed to accommodate us for a fee of P3,000. (Standard rate is P2,500 for a group of 6). We enjoyed the "roller-coaster"... More

The sand dunes provide a panoramic view of the different scenery Laoag has to offer. From the sea to the city to the lush dunes, this was a surprisingly breathtaking sight to behold. Avail of the 4x4 trek and skip the ATV so that you could have an unlimited run at the sand surfing part of the attraction. We were... More

This really made our family vacation complete. At first we were apprehensive and we were not sure if we are going to enjoy it not to mention that you have to pay P2,500 for an hour activity but our guide was very persuasive and thus we had a grand time... feeling like the warriors of mad max and a part...

We told our contact we wanted to reach the sunset. Our meeting time is 330 but they decline to start right away since it will only take 45 mins to drive us around. They insisted 5pm would be best for the sunset drive. I was a bit unsure as December month means earlier sunset. 445pm we came to them and... More

This attraction so far served as the cherry on top of the Ilocandia tour. It puts your adrenaline rush to the test. This is definitely a must try activity when going to Laoag. Apart from 4x4 ride, visitors can also try a hand on sand boarding. My then 5 yr old son was allowed to sand board provided he is... More

This is a must try activity. Best to come early in the morning or late in the afternoon at sundown... They've got the best drivers and are very professional. They look after each of their guest's safety and comfort... The cost is 2,500 which includes a 20 min 4x4 ride and unlimited sand boarding. ( not bad for a not... More
