Ica / Huacachina / Paracas

2 day/1 night, Sandboarding/Dune Buggies/Ballestas Islands Boat Tour

This multi-adventure 2 day 1 night tour is a must do for anyone that has a few days to explore the greater Lima area. Located only 4 hours south of Lima are some of the largest sand dunes in the world. There is no better way to experience this expanse of dunes than actually driving through them in a passenger size dune buggy with an experienced driver.

Along with this wild ride you will stay in comfort in a 3 star hotel. And the second day experience nature and sea life up close on a boat ride around the Ballestias Islands in Paracas Nature Reserve.

Itinerary

Your tour leaves from Lima mid-morning and you arrive to Ica in the early afternoon. It is a 4 hour drive and along the way you will have lunch at one of our favorite local restaurants and then check out one of the local bodegas to see the Pisco making process from grape to bottle and also get to sample Pisco, a type of grape brandy exclusive to the region.

At 3:30pm you will be in the oasis town of El Huacachina, getting ready to start your off-road adventure. This is when you go on a high adrenaline dune buggy and sandboarding tour for 2 hours in the dunes above the oasis and watch the sun go down from the seemingly endless dunes.

After the sunset you will return to your 3 star hotel near the oasis in El Huacachina. After showering up and relaxing a bit your night will be free to walk around this little town and check out the restaurants and nightlife.

Early the next morning you will get up for breakfast which is included with your hotel stay and then drive 1 hour out to Paracas Nature Reserve. You will be at the dock by 8am ready to get on board the boat and see the nature reserve from the ocean perspective. The Ballestas Islands are home to numerous species of birds, sea lions, and many other sea creatures.

After getting off the boat you will begin your return to Lima arriving in the late afternoon.
