Tours and Tickets by Buggy Huacachina
This dune buggy tour starts from the reception of Carola Lodge located at Av. Angella Perotti, 11000 Huacachina. The tour starts at 16:00 pm and once in the vehicle we make sure everyone has the seatbelts on and start this awesome experience. We drive through Huacachina's Desert and stop in the top of huge dunes for you to use the basic sandboards. The whole activity lasts 2 hours, ending with a gorgeous view of the sunset.

Important: You will need to pay an entrace fee to the desert which is 4 soles per person (local currency).

It was a very fun tour, the driver was very nice ( sorry I forgot his name). And it's not that expensive, but for the another day we wanted do sandboard again, we just rented our tables.

Get a crazy driver, the buggy is half the fun, exciting and fast!!! The sand boarding is impressive at once, but get it done it is amazing, you have to do it at least once in your life and here is the place! Super fun, the sunset was amazing too!

The experience was really fun but disappointed to have set off nearly 30 minutes late. Given the tour was supposed to be 2 hours, it was odd we only had the chance to go down 2 times on the sandboard. When I spoke with travelers on different tours they had been able to go down 5 times. It felt like we spent most of our time sitting and waiting for the car to come back as it was touring around other groups at the same time..

When you arrive in Agua China, you will be pressed to purchase balaclavas for the adventure to keep sand out of face/mouth. Pending wind, you will likely not need. Regardless, shop around as you can purchase for 5 s. each if you barter enough. We purchased 3. The trip in the dune buggy was very fun. Very safe as long as you do strap in the seat tight. The sand boarding was very fun as well and not as fast as I thought. We did some very steep hills with half the buggy occupants backing out on 2 of the hills because of height. Do all the hills, Betsy easy to do. Enjoy it, do all the hills, enjoy the sunset.
