    • Nazca Lines from Pisco or Ica Airport?

      Nazca Jul 20, 2016 at 5:58 AM

      I am planing to see the Nazca Lines in the beginning of August. From what I read it is the cheapest to go the local airport and by the tickets directly there. I thought flights only go from Nazca but then I saw some reviews saying that they flew from the airport in Pisco and Ica. So is it also possible to buy tickets at those airports last-minute? And if yes, is the price the same? The cheapest i read was 65$ pp at the Nazca airport.

      Paracas tours

      Paracas May 18, 2016 at 9:52 AM

      Hallo. Pls tell me in order to do the Ballestas tour do we have to just get at 7.30am to the port and buy a ticket? What if too many people do this? Are there more than one boats? Or do you think it is better to book it through an agency? But this is an additional 20 dollars to per person.
      As for the National reserve Park do you think we can do it by renting a car? Is it possible to do this? And when we want to get closer to the edge of the cliffs to see the view, the car has to be left alone on the road? Any personal experience?
      I would appreciate your help. Thank you.

      Paracas Tours

      Paracas May 15, 2016 at 9:02 PM

      Hallo. I am really confused and I wish you could help me. We want to depart from Lima for Nazca. But we will either take a night bus and fly in the morning over the lines which is a bit too tiring for us since we have never traveled by a night bus and we don't know how well we will be able to sleep. Or take an early bus and split the drive by touring in Paracas at the Ballestas islas, the National Park and the Huacachina desert and then depart for Nazca. My question is if all these tours in Paracas are really worth to spend a day there or it would be better to add this day as a plus to a more local coloured city like Cusco or Titicaca Lake.
      I would appreciate your help. Thank you.

    • Ballestas Island & Paracas National Reserve

      Paracas Oct 17, 2012 at 3:24 PM

      We are hesitating if we should pre-book the tour for Ballestas Island & Paracas National Reserve before we go to Peru or should do the trip ourselves.

      Somehow, we have a good search online, there aren't many tours which combine both places.

      Any idea which is the best arrangement to visit both places as a day trip from Lima?

      Nazca Lines: Is Weather A Concern?

      Nazca Jan 10, 2012 at 9:35 AM

      I understand to view the Nazca Lines, you fly over in a plane. I know that sometimes, in general, weather can affect tours that involve flying. Is weather a concern for Nazca Lines flights? Will be traveling in early May. Is it better to take a flight in the morning, or afternoon, or does it not matter? Thanks!

      We plan a trip to Peru in September. We are seniors and would like to avoid travelling by buses.
      Do you know how much a taxi from Lima to Pisco would cost?

    • Flight to Nasca

      Nazca Jun 3, 2011 at 11:10 PM

      Hi!
      We plan a roundtrip from Lima to Nasca (landing in Nasca).
      Because the land trip is very long and tiring, we desperately look for flights.
      There are no commercial flights, chartered ones are way too expensive.
      Do you guys know any travel agancies that organize such flights?
      If not directly from Lima, maybe at least from Pisco or Ica?

      Thank you for any helpful comment!

    • Things to do on 01 January in Nazca

      Nazca Oct 15, 2008 at 10:37 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I might be in Nazca on 01 January. I found out that many tours don't run or they charge more because it is a public holiday... Therefore, I will probably do the 'regular tours' and the flight over the Lines one day later / or one day before. Is there anything to do in Nazca on 01 Jan., e.g. any markets or is it possible to get to the sand dunes, any place to swim...? I'm not a big fan of museums. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      Best regards,

    • Safe airline for Nazca Line flight?

      Nazca Aug 13, 2008 at 10:36 PM

      Hi everyone,

      Can anyone recommend a rather safe airline for the Nazca Lines flight? I want to fly from Nazca - just the 30-40min flight over the lines.

      There have been quite a few stories about the safety of the planes for the Nazca Lines flight in the last few weeks.

      I don't know whether it is true, but I heard that Aerocondor doesn't have a licence for scheduled flights anymore due to safety reasons (they are only allowed to do charter flights). The Nazca Lines flights would be charter flights but I can't reach their website anymore. As far as I know, Aerocondor was considered to be (one of the) safest airlines for the Nazca Lines flight...

      Are there any news about AeroCondor? Have they given up the Nazca Lines flight?

      Thanks for your replies in advance.

    • Daytrip to Pampas Galeras Vicuna NP

      Nazca Jul 9, 2008 at 3:36 AM

      Hi,

      I'm interested in doing a daytour from Nazca to the Pampas Galeras National Park to see the vicunas there. I only found one tour operator that offers such a daytour (www.mysteryperu.com), but they don't reply to my e-mails. Some other operators offer mountain bike tours at the Pampas Galeras, but mountain biking's not what I want.

      Does anyone know of a tour operator that offers such a tour?

      Thank you very much in advance.

      Hi all,

      I'm planning a trip to Peru in August and I really would like to see the Nazca Lines. Ideally, I'd like to leave from Lima, see the Nazca Lines, and eventually end up in Arequipa, in around 2 days if possible. Does anybody know of tour operators who do this route, or if there's an easy way to arrange it myself?
