It's a MUST! I suggest to get the 4x4 vehicle ride as it comes with the unlimited sand boarding 😊👍🏻 Wear something comfy and remove your watches before sand boarding as I guarantee you'll be covered by sands 🤣😂

The whole experience was so amazing we've decided to do it again twice! The 4x4 will definitely bring out the extreme adventurer in you and the sand boarding although it really did hurt was FUNtastic! I will definitely come back for more! 😂😂😂

A safe place for fun adventures. Drivers of the 4x4 maneuvered it professionally. Unforgettable memorable experience for us.

I was not fit at that time to take the 4x4 ride and sandboarding but I saw their beaming faces and heard the shouts of excitement of my friends who tried it. I was able to savor the romantic view of the sunset.

Does anyone know how much the fee is for driving around the sand dunes? I assume there's a rental fee for the 4x4 and a service fee for the driver?

Minimum wax 4000 pesos for the smallest ATV . It all depends on how long you want to do the ride. There are bigger rides for more.
Hi! I would like to ask what is better, we go directly to La Paz Sand Dunes at 6am or to contact some operators? we are 8pax and we are not sure if it is necessary to contact operators. My friends and I will be doing DIY tour at Ilocos for lower expenses. I hope for your reply. Thank you!

We planned our own itinerary when we went to Ilocos last November,however Its best if you hire a local transport & tour operator. the distance between tour sites are quite far so commmuting is not recommended.
