Enjoy a thrilling adventure amidst the sand dunes near Huacachina during this 3-hour guided sand buggy ride and sand boarding experience. Take a sand-based rollercoaster ride as you motor up the steep 1,640-foot (500-meter) sand dunes by buggy, before zooming back down at high speed. Then strap on a board for a chance to try sand boarding, carving your way down the steep sand banks. You’ll get to try your hand on three or four dunes before finishing your day with a chance to watch a breathtaking desert sunset. Your trip also includes a local guide.

I booked this experience and was followed up with an email confirming my reservation and giving instructions for a meeting point. We arrived right on time, to only find out this "La Bamba Sand Buggy Experience" didn't exist at this place. The hostel said they had heard of quite a few guests looking for "La Bamba" but it simply did not exist. We ended up having to pay for another Sand Buggy and Sand Board rental through the Desert Nights Hostel. It ended up working out for us, but we discourage you from booking this one in particular.

Lots of fun with multiple opportunities to Sandboard with the sunset it was an idyllic setting and a fun way to spend a couple hours. You are in a Buggy of about 12. However you can book this with your hostel for much cheaper as I found out later.
