Frequently Asked Questions:

Is it possible to do the Areneros tour the same day if I will leave for Paracas / Lima at 6.30pm?

If possible. The tour starts at 4:00 p.m. and lasts 2 hours, so you will be back around 6:00 p.m. If you are already registered on the bus, we will wait for you to return from the tour if there is any delay.

Is sandboarding safe?

Sandboarding is safe as long as you are responsible so take it easy, as every year there are accidents of people who go too fast. You will not win against a wall of sand

Are the Sandboxes safe?

Yes, the buggies of our recommended operator are very safe. Their drivers will make sure you have a ton of fun, but they will never take any chances. All seats have a seat belt so they are well fastened. Not all operators have modern and safe sandboxes so it is important to be careful when booking tours.

Can I handle the sandbox myself?

Sandboxes cannot be operated. All the drivers are certified, you cannot drive a sandbox through the dunes without a special certificate or permit. You will understand why once you do the tour!

I want to spend more time sandboarding, can I rent boards per day?

Yes. For those who want to stay in Huacachina and hone their skills there are many places in town where they can rent boards for themselves by the hour, half a day or a full day.

I was late and missed the tour. Can I change it for the next day?

Unfortunately if you are late and miss the sandboarding tour the operator will charge the full amount for the NO SHOW as your seat was reserved in the sandbox and it was not sold to anyone else. If you would like to book the tour again for the next day there is no problem, but you will have to pay again.
