But there was so much to see in Nazca that we hardly scratched the surface in our three night stay.
Our visit to Nazca included the infamous Nazca lines, the Palpa geoglyphs, the Cahuachi pyramid and the Chauchilla cemetery complete with mummified remains.
And we had the pleasure of staying at the amazing Wasipunko Ecolodge - a must stay if you are coming to Nazca, especially with children. The kids were especially keen to set up the tent and explore the beauty of Wasipunko - with doves and peacocks as a natural feature in the backyard it has a real magical feel. We could've easily spent longer here if we had the time but alas we had to move on to our next destination.
the nazca lines
The best way to view the lines (dating back to 400-650 AD) is from the air but we decided just to drive out to the viewing towers to have a look for ourselves. While we could only see a couple of lines (the frog and the tree) from the tower, it was worth the drive out to see them.
