TravelPod Member ReviewsHostal Don Agucho Nasca
Overall we had a good stay. Rooms are comfortable and a good size. We had trouble with the hot water in the shower, the staff offered to move us and in the midst of all the moving about, our son hit his head quite hard in the room we were going to be moved to. One of the staff was really nice and did a Reiki session on him. The pool had a nasty brown colour when we arrived, but improved on day 3 so we could have a dip. Good breakfast. Unfortunately, we were sold a tour to the Nazca lines in the hotel, but I think this was overpriced. They told us we would be alone in the cab but when we started to drive off, the driver picked up two more passengers so that my son had to sit on my lap. Best to shop around more for a tour.

We went to a lecture about the lines last night, at the planetarium, with a contagiously enthusiastic man. Before entering the ...
Our bags arrived on the 3rd. Thank the gods. Losing no time we set off on our 8 hour bus journey (quite comfortable: reclining seats & films) to Nasca down the Pan American highway.
Since we arrived rather late the only thing left to do was go to a bar. This time it was Lena's turn to sample the local specialty: Pisco sour. Apparently one was quite enough. After an intellectually ...
... living within hundreds of kilometres of the place. The mad, enigmatic geometric shapes were also mind bending - I particularly liked the ones that were drawn over hills that might have otherwise got in the way.
Back on land I handed the co-pilot a decent tip for being such a good sport with my forgetful idiocy, made my way back to the bus station, and by 10am was on my way to the coastal town of Paracas.
... hunt. It was five women and Dan. We had to do things like take a photo of enjoying something sweet or sour ( We stopped at a restaurant and enjoyed pisco sours ( the famous drink from this area like a whiskey sour but pisco is the local brandy/whisky) We had to enjoy grapes (we stopped at at a wine tasting) Terrible wine. Way too sweet. Photos of what we did best, and photos with locals etc. It was quite fun. We came in second and I ...
