As hard as it is to believe, a mere 2 hours from central Lima sit beautiful sand dunes. Aucallama is the home town of the ‘Lima Sandboard’ crew. Here, you can discover the joys of sandboarding as well as participate in their social project ‘Mi duna mi hogar’, focused on the education of local children of the values of extreme sports, their development of social values and of new opportunities.
You can sign up for a full day experience, as well as sign up for a two day package incorporating camping on the summit of a dune, bathing in the setting sunlight and admiring breathtaking views over the clouds during the sunrise.
