PERU TRAVEL invites you to be part of this new and unique adventure in the Nazca Valley. Travel across the Nazca desert aboard a dune buggy. Get the full experience of the beautiful Usaka dunes and build memories that last a lifetime. In addition to the ride on the dunes, we offer you sand boards so that you can practice one of the ultimate sport of Peru "Sandboarding". The road to the Usaka desert also features stunning views of the great ancient Citadel of Cahuachi, an enormous city built about 2000 years ago entirely with mud. Along the way you will also see old tombs from pre-Inca times and human remains scattered on the desert floor.
Our dune buggy excursion begins with the collection of our clients at their hotels. Afterwards we will drive west of Nazca, following a dirty road that leads to the lower section of the Nazca Valley. We will drive along the Nazca River and after 20 minutes we will reach the archaeological site of Cahuachi. At the ruins of Cahuachi we will explore on foot its pyramids and temples. Later we will stop at Estaqueria, another archaeological zone made up of an array of stakes placed on a natural platform about 2000 years ago. At this place we will also visit an ancient cemetery that features tombs structures and human bones scattered on the surface. We will go west along the Nazca River passing agricultural fields, more ancient burial sites and the little farm community of Tambo de Perro. Eventually we will arrive in Usaka, a great oasis surrounded by beautiful sand dunes. In Usaka, we will head towards the desert where we will have the chance to drive over the dunes and also practice sand boarding. Here our guide will teach you how to use the sand boards and also safe techniques for riding on these dunes. After doing sandboarding for about an hour, we will take the road back to Nazca.
