If you are interested in why the lines were made, a good book is "Lines to the Mountain Gods" by Evan Haddingham. He presents some of the theories and then gives his own interpretation.
By the way, the hotel across the street from the airport (I cannot remember the name) has drinks and food and a sapo table if you find yourself waiting for a flight.

Theories on the lines range from space ship landing strips to population control systems, to foot race tracks and agricultural and irrigation systems. Some think they were for a ritual purpose. Whatever the reason for their existance, this area has boggled the minds of archaeologists, scientists and curiosity seekers for hundreds of years.
Arrangements to see the Lines can be made from most hotels in Lima. They will arrange a flight to Ica where you will take a small plane over the lines. Anyone who suffers from motion sickness should come prepared as the planes dip back and forth to view the Lines.
There are two hotels in Ica to stay and explore this area. The Las Dunas is on the edge of the town and rooms go for about $78. The Mossone Hotel is five minutes from Ica and runs about $52 a night. Both are very nice with restaurants, bar and swimming pool.
