Don't go back to your country without practice sandboard in Ica. It is amazing! Even, rent some sand cars to road the dunes. Prove the local wines and the traditional desert called "chocoteja"

Never had I witnessed sand dunes composed of the finest sand the height of five-story buildings! Try climbing a sand dune; try getting to the top in order to lookout upon mile upon mile of sand dunes. Ica, Peru can be accessed by car or bus. Bring plenty of water.

We enjoyed the dune buggy up and down the sand dunes. Also looking at down at the Laguna full of life, students on recess/field trip and a police academy exercising. Surfing the dunes was impressive.

We visit the desert as part of one big day tour. The experience with the sand board and the sand car was amazing, like a very old roller coaster, too much fun.

I was hesitant to do this because I had read about the buggy drivers driving really dangerously, but I went anyway because I really wanted to try sandboarding and didn't want to walk up the dunes.

From afar a beautiful lanscape .... The oasis of Huacachina looks beautiful! But when you get there you realize it's not as nice as it looked in the distance. The boardwalk is neglected, with the cracked structures. The place looks neglected. Hotels are not very good. The lagoon would not be recommend it for bathing, although some locals are immersed...

I would like to recommend this place, however, it is a really small place. You could know all this place in a day . It is not so bad.
