Had a great time with my sisters at the sand dunes. Weather was really good, and there were not a lot of people at the time so it wasn't crowded. Our tour guides were engaging and we had an enjoyable time zipping through the sand dunes and taking lots of pics at the picture stops. Sand boarding was surprisingly exhilarating,... More

We had an exhilarating time, the kids enjoyed the 4x4 ride. It was a bumpy and exciting ride, you definitely need to experience it to appreciate the experience. It will cost you 2500 per ride for the 4x4 car and unlimited sand surfing. A must visit and a must experience!

Being on a very tight schedule, we did not get to play Mad Max among the dunes. It would be a great excuse for a re~visit, though, to ride, that is. So we got out of our rented van and rapidly walked up a sand hill, curious to find out what was on the other side. As we trudged up... More

For adrenaline junkies like me, off-road experience in the sand dunes of La Paz is one for the books! It may not have the picturesque view like that of Dubai and Sahara Deserts, but you would still enjoy and relish riding and shouting to your hearts content. A must try when in Ilocos Region!

Ended our first day in Ilocos Norte with sand boarding and touring the sand dunes in a truck. You need not to go to the Middle East to experience these. Ideal time to visit the area is before sunset. I have never seen a more spectacular sunset that what we had that day. If you're wondering what it feels to... More

Get the 1 hour. You will rent a 4x4 ride going up and done the sand dunes. 5 persons per ride. There's no roof not unless you want to sit beside the driver which accommodates one person only. It's a standing up ride, hold on to the bars or you will fall. We got the not too extreme ride. It... More
