Travel Blogs from Ica

Bodega tours not the same as Australia

A travel blog entry by humpooper


We made our way to Pisco on the 5th January after a brief stay in Lima. Pisco had been a key stop on our list ever since we decided we couldn't go to Ecuador due to time and expense. We had read that Pisco's nearby Paracas Reserve offered the far cheaper version of the galapacous islands albeit with fewer animals. Still better to see something rather than nothing! So after a 3 and a half hour bus trip we arrived in Paracas bus station to be greeted by our tour operator and boarded ...

Drawing dicks on the burning sand

A travel blog entry by mattyjordan


... made it to the top of the dune we were greeting by one of the most amazing views I have seen. Towering sand dunes with buggies driving around and over them with sand boarders everywhere.

There is the world sand boarding championship on this weekend so some really good sand boarders from all over the world showcasing their skills. From the top of one of the dunes we watched about ...
