Then we will visit a place called “Estaqueria” which is an archaeological place where you will see big stakes embedded to the desert and some buildings made of mud bricks. After that, we will go through a small town called “Tambo de Perro” which is mainly inhabited by cotton farmers. Finally we will go through the Nazca River and we will arrive to the Usaka desert. In this place we will have an amusing ride on the dunes and we will go to the top of one of the dunes to practice sand boarding.
