For adrenaline junkies like me, off-road experience in the sand dunes of La Paz is one for the books! It may not have the picturesque view like that of Dubai and Sahara Deserts, but you would still enjoy and relish riding and shouting to your hearts content. A must try when in Ilocos Region!

Ended our first day in Ilocos Norte with sand boarding and touring the sand dunes in a truck. You need not to go to the Middle East to experience these. Ideal time to visit the area is before sunset. I have never seen a more spectacular sunset that what we had that day. If you're wondering what it feels to... More

Get the 1 hour. You will rent a 4x4 ride going up and done the sand dunes. 5 persons per ride. There's no roof not unless you want to sit beside the driver which accommodates one person only. It's a standing up ride, hold on to the bars or you will fall. We got the not too extreme ride. It... More

I recommend people going to La Paz if they want to experience the famous sand dunes of Ilocos Norte. You can go on a 4x4 and have an unlimited time using their sand boards.

Ads and cellphone numbers of tour guides are everywhere around the city. I saw an ad near Paoay Church, across Spam Restaurant. We got our tour for 1,500php (7pax, 4x4 for 1hour and unlimited Sandboarding). We brought a car to the nearest parking area within the vicinity and the 4x4 picked us up. Tip: We went around 4:30pm so we... More

When we were there, it was raining a bit. So my friends and I thought about ditching this activity. But thank God we didn't. It was the highlight of our entire trip. I especially like the ride. It was exhilarating! I definitely screamed my lungs off! If I will go back to Ilocos, II would definitely be going to do... More
