This place is the main attraction if in Ica and is a definite must-see. The desert oasis of Huacachina offers a large lake in the middle of the desert. Once scaling the dunes you will see the vast desert expanse which goes as far as...More
Stayed at Bananas Hostel. Sand dunes sand boarding is a must! Definitely for adrenaline junkies! There was one hill that was so high , I almost chickened out, but worth it that I went through with it. The sand buggy drivers are young but reliable,...More
In the midst of planning a two week trip to Peru, we stumbled upon Huacachina on Instagram and decided to make the trip to that part of the country. We stayed at a resort in Paracas and took a day trip to the oasis. Our...More
Ive heard that the oasis is driying and water its pump into it occasionaly , people is trashing the surround areas no good roads , the sandboarding i personally didnt like it , the place its more for locals tourist .
Lets review it by parts.
The OASIS is infested with tourist, and tourist attractions. The have pedals boats on the lake which for us were the worst part of the view. Pointless for the size of the oasis and damaging the view. It need a...More
I am not really into dune buggies so I was not that keen on this tour, until I did it. Our small tour group of ten were loaded unto a large dune buggy which then set out for an hour or so of climbing up...More

I stayed in the Hosteleria Suiza in Huacachina in March, they take bookings over the internet. The hotel is comfortable, has a pool, and the location is very nice.
Ica is a bit nasty, no reason to stay there.

Sorry i can't answer your question accurately... i heard Soyus is a bus company they had kinda lockers for luggages and they do have a hotel... but not quite sure .... think about security first.... maybe the bus company you are travel with can hold your luggage and go huacachina have fun on the Dunes and wait till Arequipa fir a shower if you don't want to a pay a hotel....
but Ica has so many small hotels where you pay 30-+ soles so you arrived leave your stuff and come back shower and go... its more safe i guess
We arrive back from MP early 16 Sept. Has anyone rented a car w/driver to take us DIRECTLY FROM THE LIMA AIRPORT on a one night/two day tour to (1) the vineyards/bodegas of Pisco, (2) museums of Ica, and finally (3) Oasis of Huacachina where we'd like to spend the night. Any suggestions/recommendations?

Thanx Xochitl . . . you're "THE Man". I've read so much of your advice that I'm convinced they should declare you a Peruivan National Treasure.

How are you getting from Arequipa to Lima? Whether it's Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, it looks to me like you will be missing seeing Arequipa itself, which seems a shame. Have you looked carefully at the itinerary...what time you depart various places, how much travel time versus sightseeing time. Even with flying, you lose a lot of time getting to airports and bus stations, not to mention the length of the actual bus rides. Note that Ballestas is really only possible in the...More
