How To Get To Nazca

The Chauchilla Cemetery is located in the Nazca desert, a culturally rich town just a few hours south of Lima.

You have few options to get to Nazca:

  • Flight
  • Public bus
  • Peru Hop bus

Nazca has a small airport, but it’s mostly used for Nazca Lines tour departures. Few flights available and the overpriced prices make it a complete no-go for travelers

There are many public bus companies operating the Lima to Nazca route. The only problem is the headache you will have trying to compare prices and after you choose one, having to find the companies terminal since there is no central bus terminal.

Peru Hop busses offer a comfortable and safe trip, with free pickups and drop-offs. There are also included stops and tours on the way to Nazca which will make your trip much better! Make sure to check out the bus passes and decide which adventure best suits you!
