Snowboarding? S’no thanks. You’ll be hard-pressed to head back to the original once you try the sand version of one of the world’s top adventure sports. Just four hours south of Lima lies Huacachina, a tiny oasis town in the middle of the Peruvian desert where sandboarding reins supreme. Grab a board and a candlestick—locals use them to add speed to the bottom of their boards—and jump into a Transformer-esque dune buggy for a ride up and around the sweeping dunes. Just remember to buckle your seatbelt—there’s no ski patrol on these slopes. (Two-hour dune buggy and sandboarding trip from 30 soles/$10 USD with Banana’s Adventures)
If kayaking across the world’s highest navigable lake or climbing through rainforest canopy holds any appeal, this is the destination for you.
