Dune Buggies and Sand-boarding at Huacachina

Sunday found us in Ica and ready to hit the sand. We spent about two hours riding in dune buggies and sliding down large sand dunes. It really was as thrilling as it sounds. The dune buggy rides were like roller coasters and the sand-boarding was much like sledding, only hot and sandy.

Notice that the guys can’t seem to figure out how the flag should go.
