Impressive ruins, but really not a lot to see artistically. It was a part of dune buggy ride tour and if you go late afternoon bring a jacket. It got very cool fast on way back to Nazca town.

grand ruins, quite large, you walk around the front side and even then it takes a while to get through. The wind here is crazy, lighter people may get blown away, bring a jacket. Definitely recommend the standard tour here that includes Aquaducts and Pyramid

This place is amazing. Huge and misterious considering you would only be able to see 10% of it as the rest still sits under tons of sand. Really recommend the visit to this amazing site.

We were very happy we made the trip to visit the Cahuachi Pyramid. This is one of the largest and most important ruins in the Nazca region which offers clues into the lost civilization. If you're into history, definitely check it out.

We had a guide for this which was helpful, did this along with the cemetery. So that made getting to it easy as it is outside of the city. As with other Nasca Culture sites, lots of pottery fragments just laying around. What was bad about the site in my opinion, is that 90% of the walls have been completely... More

On face value, an hours driving in the desert, arriving to some pyramids and walking around is definitely a 5 star activity, however, with the right guide, it turned into a fascinating experience. The drive through the desert was permeated with little nuggets of information, and the pyramids were made fascinating when things were pointed out to us. However, the... More

Is a bit of a drive outside of Nasca. I did as an afternoon trip and arrived just before sunset. Was very windy and cool after dark. Was not crowded. Not the most exciting ruins but worth the trip
