Huacachina

Carlos sandboarding

I’ve snowboarded before, but sandboarding wasn’t even something I knew existed.  So when Carlos and I ended up in Huacachina surrounded by towering sand dunes we couldn’t resist giving it a try.  Once a resort town for the Peruvian elite, today Huacachina is better known as the playground of international backpackers.  And the most popular activity is a dune-buggy tour which includes a few sandboarding runs, actually more like sand-sledding, and time to take in the sunset from the top of the dunes.  Our dune-buggy driver was crazy and took us on a fast and wild ride up, down and over the dunes.  The views were awesome and we had a blast!
