Itinerary

Day 1: Sandboard on Giant Dunes

Wander through the ruins of Pachacamac, an ancient temple on Peru’s coast. The temple served as a ceremonial site for 1000 years before the Inca Empire.

Travel through Peru’s coastal desert to Chincha for a traditional lunch. Many people from Chincha are descendents of Africans brought over by the Spanish when they conquered Peru. The music and food in Chincha reflect this African heritage.

Sandboard down the side of giant dunes.
