One hour south of Paracas is desert oasis, surrounded by palm trees and gigantic sand dunes. Named "Huacachina", this oasis is the site of a very popular tour where travelers climb into
a 4-wheel-drive dune buggy and a professional driver takes them to explore the desert. The sand dunes are immense, like those in the Sahara Desert in Africa, and are surprisingly beautiful as well. Some passengers prefer for their dune buggy tour to be fast and adrenaline-pumping, like a thrill ride or rollercoaster. Other travelers prefer to experience the desert at a slower pace, in a relaxed and meditative speed.
Either way, this is an unforgettable tour, especially if you have a chance to see the sunset over the sand dunes. During the tour, those passengers who are adventurous are welcome to try sandboarding down the dunes on a snowboard, included in the tour.
Cost: $35 USD per person
