You go around very quickly (10 min max when you walk slowly) but it is very cute and you have an amazing sunset on the oasis !

How can you combined an adrenaline and romantic tour together, you need to go to "La Huacachina". If you take the tour towards the sunset and go with your significant other, then you'll have a blast. It begins with crazy driving around the sand dunes including sand boarding. It is a great experience! After screaming our hearts out, the driver... More

If you wanna do some sandboarding than that´s a nice place to go... This is a tinny little lagoon surounded by dunes... You can´t even swim cause the water is poluted (as staff will tell you in the hotel)

So here i was super excited and as i braced myself for the unfolding of the oasis i looked upon a puddle surrounded by a mini ghost town. The walk around the Oasis in literally 5 minutes, though no need to walk it, you can see it all from any one spot. What i found interesting about the place is... More

Great experience! Short Drive from Ica, can't remember how much but extremely cheap by taxi. Rent a board at the lagoon and climb a few dunes! Also check out the dune buggy tours!

I spent 2 days/1 night in this amazing place which I highly recommend! Travelled by a night bus (5h10 with Cruz del Sur which is very safe and comfortable) from Lima to Ica and then got a taxi to Huacachina (+-15 min). This is a place where you can have a lot of fun and at the same time experience... More

Loved Huacachina. So much fun to have in the sun. Our dune buggy rider was a little ´LOCO´which was cool because it added a danger element to it jajaja. DSandboarding was so much fun. Wax your boards and you go faster. the lagoon is very romantic in the evening. Makes me wish I was here when the Oasis was brand... More
