My body was sore for three days after sand boarding in Huacachina, possibly due to the fact that I rarely exercise or maybe it was the countless falls in the sand. I’m guessing both!

Chris and I arrived in Ica, and took a 5 soles cab ride to Huacachina.  Our taxi driver recommended hostel Carolina del Sur.  The price was good and there was a pool, so that made our decision making process very simple.

The next day we booked a tour with the hostel for 45 soles each ($17), which included 2 hours of sandboarding and a dune buggy ride throughout the dunes.  What an experience!  Our driver was crazy….or at least his driving skills were! It was like a rollercoaster ride in the middle of the dunes.
I took a few tumbles and Chris cut up his finger on a piece of metal in the sand, but all in all it was a pretty sweet deal!
