Parachuting In Huacachina, Peru

Grant Allen/Adventure Tribune
A parachuter cruises above us in the Peruvian deserts of Huacachina at sunset.

As we bring our desert dune buggy adventure to an end at sunset, we look above us and see someone connected to a parachute gliding over the sand dunes. We're not sure if this person took off from one of Huacachina's 700-foot dunes, or jumped from a plane. Either way, this person experienced some incredible views of the desert at sunset.

Huacachina is known for adventure. With options to skydive, dune buggy, and sandboard, travelers will never be bored. Huachina is even home to the Sandboarding World Cup each summer.

Spend some time in the small oasis town situated around a desert pond. Relax at the restaurants and hostels before embarking on one of Huacachina's adventure opportunities - there are plenty to choose from.
