Flight before hotel

Hi everyone.

Were planning on taking a Cruz Del Sur bus over night from Arrequipa to Nazca, it is scheduled to arrive at 6:30 AM. We planned to go straight to the airport for a flight over the lines before headng back to a hotel in the town that we have yet to book.

Is it easy to get from the coach station to the airport?

Is there a stroage facility at the airport while we are on our flight?

And is it easy to get back to Nazca town for our hotel?

Thanks for all your help in advance.

6:30AM is pretty early. I would sort out a hotel in Nazca and dump your stuff before heading to the airport.

The bus station is 7 mins on foot from most of Nazca's hotels. Go to your hotel, ask them to look after it and then catch a cab to the airstrip (I wouldn't call it an airport!). It is about 20 mins away and will cost 10 soles each way.

Thanks for your help.

Seems like we will just do as you both say and leave our luggage at the hotel before we check in.

Is it best to book a flight before hand or should we just turn up to the airport (airstrip)?

Also is it just planes or do they do helicopter tours?

If you don't want to sort out your hotels first, you can go straight to the airport in a cab and leave your luggage with the plane company while you do your flight. Lots of people who do not want to spend the night in Naza do that. After the flight, they catch the next bus out of town. Cos there is nothing to do in Nazca.
