Arequipa to Ica/Nazca


We will be taking an overnight bus from arequipa and could arrive in nazca or ica early morning, but we need to be in Lima either that night or early the next day (in time to make a 2:30 flight) Would it be possible to do an early flight over the nazca line and then go to Ica for sandboarding?

Or is even the best use of our time? Would it be better to the the Isla Ballistas or to spend time looking at wineries? Would their be an inexpensive way to do all of this and return to Lima with a private car?

I appreciate any thoughts.

I believe the Nazca flights start at around 9pm, so your gonna struggle to make the lines and you flight in Lima.

Please correct me if I am wrong................
