Central square
Sep 2019 • Friends
Ica is not really a touristic place, and the central place is therefore crowded with locals, which is nice. Hiwever, the place in itself is not specially impressive or nice.

Nice Walk
Jun 2019 • Couples
We decided on a getaway and thought of Ica first. From my memori s from good old days in Ica, the Plaza de Armas square was on my first visit. We made it however it was not from what I remembered. Needs to be cleaned, swept and the benches need to be painted. Anyways we enjoyed Ica and also the Square. You can't miss this place.

Plaza de Armas, Ica
May 2018 • Couples
The Plaza is located in the centre of Ica and is beautiful, well kept and very clean. There are some benches to sit and relax. There is a monument in the centre of the square. It is a typical Peruvian Plaza with a catholic church (Cathedral of Ica) adjacent to it.

Chaotic and Unfriendly
Sep 2017 • Couples
We were warned that we would have no business visiting Ica. But we wanted to see the dunes Huacachina. After visiting Huacachina we we the the Plaza de Armas to get some dinner. It was unbelievable chaotic (in a bad way). The entire plaza was a traffic jam with every cab honking their horns as if it would somehow magically clear traffic. The sidewalks were over packed with people pushing to get around. Normally we are attracted to areas with a lot going on but this was just a mess. There was no event going on in the "plaza" to justify the crowds. The plaza was more just a small open space with a small statue.

We tried to find some food. We always avoid the overpriced tourist restaurants and seek out the local "hole in the wall" spots but this place didn't seem to have either. This area is not friendly to tourist, everyone we encountered seemed upset just to see our faces and we're just there to tolerate you long enough to take your money.

We should of taken our friends advice and caught a night train after we went to Huacachina to see the dunes.

Cute Coffee Shop
Jul 2017 • Couples
The plaza was nice, but not the most exciting (compared to many others in Peru). We visited a nice coffee shop and had a drink. There were other restaurants that looked good, but that was about it. I would not go out of my way to see the center of Ica, but if you are passing through (waiting for a return bus to Lima, etc.) it is a nice place to grab some coffee and people watch.
