What is really a must is to do a sandboarding on the desert dunes!
We hire a dune buggie and we jump on the dunes...we were in total 5 people plus the driver that was absolutely a funny crazy peruvian guy!
It costs us 6USD each, but the guy took us 8 hours along the desert, up and down, up and down, and sometimes, some dunes were really very hight and i missed also the breath!!! was crazy but the adrenaline was 100%!!!
This is something you cannot really miss!
During the way you do also sandboarding which is pretty cool if you are used to make snowboarding, if not...well, nothing bad, you just crash you a** on the sand...
If you caught a beautifull day, the scenario is pretty phantastic, but takre care, at the late afternoon is pretty cold!
At the end of the day, we all shared a bottle of Pisco!!! I just got other friends...
Just another suggestion...reccomand to the driver to fullfill the car....as our car at at certain point....was without gasoline...
