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.

Sand dunes around Huacachina

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.
