This is worth the visit. It is a drive through barren land and then the ruins appear. They are massive. Pablito who has worked there for 24 years and joined in with the excavation has a lot of knowledge to share. There are more ruins...More

This site is okay but don't pay a ton of money to see it. You can walk through part of it, your required to have a guide. Bathrooms available, bring TP. And bring a LOT of water, none available to purchase.

If you spend a morning flying over the lines I can recommend going here in the afternoon, but only with a guide. It brings some extra background on the Nazca people. Be aware that the road leading here is a dirt road and that you...More

This is such a fascinating site. It's impressive to see how they built it! There is little shade I would suggest you to take hat and sunscreen.

We visited Cahuachi as part of a dune buggy tour that started with a trip to an aqueduct, then a tour of Cahuachi and finally a trip to the local sand dunes. One of our favorite tours of the trip.

I know it's a bold claim that this site is better than Machu Picchu, but I genuinely believe it is. Take away the setting of MP in the iconic saddle of the mountain, the built environment at Cahuachi is far more impressive. This is is...More

THis place is amazing. I believe it is the oldest adobe pyramid found. It is so impressive to see how these beings created these places. It is a ceremonial center.

I stayed at the hotel kunan wasi, and they have their own tour guide. His name is Juan Carlos Rojas. He also works with another hotel, can't remember the name.

Nasca guide (4 Replies)
Does anyone have a recommendation for a guide in the Nasca area. We might go through an agency however, I'm considering during it independently. We want to see the Nasca Lines. Cemetary of Chauchilla, aqueducts and Cahuachi.

OR your ideas. thanks I know about the bustoParacas , but then how would you do the rest?

I'm planning a trip for April. Everything I've read here and in two guide books says do not rent a car in Peru. It's cheaper, safer and a lot less hassle to book a driver to take you. Nasca is 2 hours from Paracas. A lot of people take the bus between. Cruz del Sur or Ormeno are high end tour buses. One way price from Paracas to Nasca is about $50 I think.
