A small oasis town near Ica, Peru. It is a beautiful place, perfect for relaxing and slowing down after more fast-paced adventures. It was one of our favourite stops of the whole trip.
What is on offer?
- Buggy rides on the surrounding sand dunes
- Sand boarding (dress appropriately, wear helmets, don’t go too fast on the biggest sand dune…I got totalled)
- Paddleboat rides on the Huacachina Lagoon
- Pisco tours (they get you hammered, so be prepared & you can say no)
Where to stay
Banana Adventures is a great hostel to stay at, it has a pool, bar & great food. The price of the hostel also includes a sand dune tour (buggy & boarding) + pisco tasting tour.
