Is it possible to do the Buggy tour on the same day that I will depart Huacachina for Paracas/Lima at 18:30pm?
Yes, it is possible. The Buggy tour starts at 16:00pm and lasts for 2 hours, so you will be back at around 18:00pm. At certain time of the year the tour is moved 30minutes later to ensure you catch the sunset on the dunes, this is done in co-ordination with the Peru Hop bus. If you are booked on the bus, we will wait for you to come back from the tour even if there are any delays.
Is Sandboarding safe?
Sandboarding is safe provided that you are responsible, so take it easy as each year there are accidents from people going too fast. You will not come out winning versus a wall of sand.
Are the buggies Safe?
Yes, the buggies of our recommended operator are extremely safe. Their drivers will make sure you have a lot of fun but never take any risks, and all seats have a seat-belt to ensure you are strapped in safely. Not all operators have safe modern buggies so it is important to be careful when booking tours.
Can I drive the buggy myself?
No, it is not possible to drive the buggies. All of the drivers are certified, you cannot drive a buggy through the dunes without certification and special permits. You will understand why once you have done it!
I want to spend longer Sandboarding, can I hire boards per day?
Yes. For those wishing to hop off in Huacachina and perfect their board skills there are a number of places in town where you can hire the boards yourself by the hour or half/full day.
I was late and missed my tour. Can I change it for tomorrow?
Unfortunately, if you turn up late and miss the sandboarding tour, the operator will still charge the full price for the NO SHOW as your seat was reserved in the buggy and not sold to anyone else. If you would like to book the tour again for the next day then you can do it, but you will have to pay a second time. Tours can be cancelled up to 4 hours before the scheduled departure.
