Sandboarder & Guide
My husband and I were in Peru about a month ago, and one of the places we visited was La Huacachina. He was impressed with the Peruvian desert and had no idead that sandboard existed. He found it amazing that people would climb up the dunes (in scorching-hot weather!) to go down in a couple of minutes! You guys should consider putting up a gondola (as in ski mountains) to get more people to practice sandboard. Keep it up!# adriana narvaez says :

# Jonathan Green says :Huaca China is not only one of my two favorite places in Peru, but favorites world wide.The first time I was there in 1997, some members of the Israeli army were training in the dunes and sand boarding. On my later visit, I was there is the late afternoon and early evening and instead of sand boarders, there were people flying kites up on the dunes.As the dark came on it reminded me of being in a WWII north African film noir.
Thanks for this excellent article on Huacachina. As the owner/manager of Huacachina.com Tours I appreciate you promoting our little piece of paradise in Peru. It is frustrating to many of us that many foreign tourists take tours to Pisco and Paracas, and then drive straight to Nazca, without even realizing that one of the most interesting and enjoyable sites in Peru is just minutes from the Pan-americana highway. Luckily, as awareness of Huacachina grows amongst backpackers and more well-heeled tourists, the tour agencies are starting to add us to the "must-do" list.# Zac Dennehy says :
While I apologize for the self-promotion, I encourage visitors to check out Huacachina.com as it contains lots of general information about Huacachina, such as when to visit, what to do, what tours are available, as well as maps and other useful info. Until we get support and assistance from the city government of Ica, our site is as close as you can get to an official source of information on the area.
