We had a guide for this which was helpful, did this along with the cemetery. So that made getting to it easy as it is outside of the city. As with other Nasca Culture sites, lots of pottery fragments just laying around. What was bad about the site in my opinion, is that 90% of the walls have been completely... More

On face value, an hours driving in the desert, arriving to some pyramids and walking around is definitely a 5 star activity, however, with the right guide, it turned into a fascinating experience. The drive through the desert was permeated with little nuggets of information, and the pyramids were made fascinating when things were pointed out to us. However, the... More

Is a bit of a drive outside of Nasca. I did as an afternoon trip and arrived just before sunset. Was very windy and cool after dark. Was not crowded. Not the most exciting ruins but worth the trip

Before I came to Nazca I had no idea that this place existed! It's rare for us to take a tour but it's really worth it, you find it so much information on the Nazcan people and their society

Good experience to see the pre Inca ruins. It is not completely excavated yet. Guiding rocks on the road keep us at the distance.

It's easy to be in Nazca and not even know the existence of Cahuachi. Located about 10 km outside of Nazca on the highway heading south past the airport, there are a few signs that are easy to miss. You'll need a good 4x4 unless you're on a bus. We had a rental car and sped through the bumpy road... More

We visited Cahuachi with a local guide as part of a visit to the Nazca Lines and the Chauchilla Necropolis. The sites are all related to one another and we're all made by the same people. Seeing them together, with a guide to provide context was an amazingly rounded experience. Cahuachi is part of a 24km square ceremonial and administrative... More

A remote ruin.. a rough desert drive out of Nazca Peru. Some reconstruction has been done and some is left sorta untouched.. though it looks like looters have down a lot of damage to the back side. There are pottery sherds and bone fragments spread over much of the un-reconstructed surroundings. There was a watchman at the site, but no... More
