Surf over mountains of sand on the Veracruz coastline on this adrenaline-inducing sandboarding experience at the Chachalacas dunes!

Sandboarding at Chachalacas

Have you ever surfed on dry land? There's a first time for everything! At 8 am we'll pick you up from the hotel or meeting point in Veracruz and set off for our sandboarding experience. After a 50 minute drive, we'll reach the coast at Chachalacas, where our adventure begins!

From the coastal area, we'll head up to the dunes of Chachalacas by Jeep. There, we'll receive a brief lesson on how to handle the sandboards - don't worry, it's very simple and you'll soon be gliding over the sand!

After our theoretical class, we'll put what we've learnt into practice. You'll have three hours to practice sandboarding on the dunes: there are hills of all different heights, so you can start off small and dare yourself to surf down the bigger ones later! 

At the end of our sandboarding experience, we'll head back down to the coast and swap the Jeep for a bus for the journey back to Veracruz. You'll be dropped back off at hotels at around 1:30 pm.
