One of the most spectacular yet unknown remains of the Incas are the Nazca lines. Up to now nobody knows how exactly they were created and why.
The above picture was not done with a smartphone but with a canon professional, still the view from the plane is very clear and if zoomed even pictures taken with a smartphone are clear enough....in the end the memory stays with you does not in the picture. The above figure is the Colibri.
We arrived in Nazca at 5:30 in the morning coming in from Arequipa. Pay attention as at the bus station there are already people waiting trying to rip you off with the flight over the lines. As we were still trying to actually wake up, we had a coffee across the street and the owners advised us to get all arranged directly at the aerodrome, what we also did. Once there again some agencies were trying to convince us to go with them, but we said we want to check out the "offer". So after looking around we decided to get the standard tour with Aero Paracas.
We booked the 4 person plane paying 70 USD per person. As we did not have so much cash with us, they agreed to pay them the money at the end to the driver that was bringing us back to the city. You can pay with VISA but there is a 6% extra charge...so either get enough money with you or try to convince them to pay afterwards. You can pay in soles.
During the flight, the pilot & co-pilot explained us where exactly we should look so that we can see the figures. It is everything super clear so if you follow the instructions you won't miss them for sure. Everything takes around 30 minutes. Neither me nor my friends felt any type of height/plane sick. At the end you can stamp your passport that you have seen the Nazca lines and you get a certificate. :)
Once back to the city, we went eat at Limon & Sazon close by the bus terminals. We had the chevice mixto and spade fish, EXCELLENT, really good and fresh food, I totally recommend it.
Well, enjoy the flight, if available get a good camera to have nice shoots, if not you will for sure have a great memory.
