When to Go to Nasca

In the summer months (mid-December through March) it is just plain old hot in Nasca. The rest of the year, days usually dawn with garĂşa (drizzle) that may delay flights over the Lines, but it quickly burns off. Also expect windy afternoons and chill nights.

Holidays and Festivals
Nasca has quite a calendar of events:

January 23—Aniversario Provincial de Nasca—Celebration of the province’s founding

April 6—Day of the Declaration of the 7 Wonders of Peru (the Nasca Lines came in first place)
