Would have definitely preferred the smooth ride of a helicopter (couldn't find any helicopter tours of Nazca lines) - fortunately we arrived on a day with non-bumpy air. Still recommend a little Dramamine for those fixed-wing small planes. Actually, organic Ginger would be better and less drowsy. Having said that - the Nazca Lines are simply astonishing. It's a once in a lifetime experience and an absolute must see. I'm still stunned that the individual drawings are so incredibly clear hundreds and hundreds of years after they were created. We wound up taking a first-class 4-hour bus ride from Lima to Paracas....then overnight for the flight.....then bus 5 hours back to Lima....but it was worth it. Seems like someone would come up with a flight out of Arequipa or Lima so people don't have to spend so much time to reach the Nazca Lines. Or, extend the experience more with some sort of longer tour, historical interpretation, etc. Looking at the lines leaves one wanting to know more....who, what, where, and especially HOW.
