Dune Buggy Rides - Other Activity Huacachina Oasis - Peru

Huacachina has become THE place to go for riding the desert dunes in a buggy. Outings are usually planned in the cooler hours of morning, or in the evening to watch the sun set. Many companies combine dunebuggying with sandboarding. Others offer trips out to virgin beaches, where the Ica Desert meets the Pacific Ocean, to fossil fields or overnight excursions for camping in the back country. As thrilling an activity as dunebuggy riding is, it is controversial, ecologically speaking; see The Ica Desert for further discussion on this issue. Dune buggies range from four-passenger to 16-passenger.
