Even if the weather did not cooperate, we got the best impression of the place. Only in the Philippines we can see up to the horizon the vast sand dune almost same like a desert, only the color made it different. We love it there.

The ride with the tykes are indeed thrilling and more so with the sand surfing. Drivers and those that assist in sand surfing are all friendly and knew what they're doing. The thrill and view makes the experience worth every penny.

Experiencing riding a 4x4 in La Paz Sand dunes is an amazing experience! Even if its so hot when we were there, we enjoyed our ride. The cost is 1,500 for 30 minutes and 2,500 for an hour (with sandbording). I can say that 30 minutes is enough to flex your muscles and to exercise your vocal cords (hahaha!). Our... More

We went there without any plans of riding the 4x4 since there were only 2 of us and the 4x4s require a minimum of 5 people. We just heard of the new "elsa" statue (from the movie Himala) that has just been unveiled the week before, and we were curious about it. So we were ready for hiking, hot summer... More

The title I gave this review is based on the feeling you will have during your sand dunes ride, the price is a bit high, but if you have 5-6 people in your group it is not bad. 2500 per rent of a 4x4 jeep which includes a tour of all the surrounding of the sand dunes, with a roller... More

If you want to take a break from cultural tour and would like some adventure, La Paz Sand Dunes is a great place to go! However, I suggest that you go here with your own car instead of arranging with them to pick you up at the City Center because they will not follow the time you want them to... More

I engage in free-dive Spearfishing and on Scuba ... I've done aerobatics while Skydiving ... Going through the sand dunes standing in the rear of a 4X4 is okay but does not quite make it to what we consider as "fun" ... I thought it was on the expensive and overrated side ... but it was okay, I guess ...

Definitely the best attraction we've visited in Laoag! It's a bit expensive but worth the price. The 4x4 ride is fun but tiring and can give you muscle pain. I enjoyed sandboarding much more. At first we were hesitant to try it because it looks unsafe, but it's super enjoying. And the sand is soft so I don't think you'll... More

The amazing roller coaster ride via 4x4 car going around the desert , stopover at the coastal area of China sea, breathtaking views plus sand boarding experience really made our Ilocos road trip memorable. My kids who are already in their teens really enjoyed it so much. It's one of the most unforgettable adventure of our lives. La Paz Sand... More
