Sand boarding in Huacachina

When you arrive at a town and no one tells you that you are at your stop it can be a little frustrating. At least we were awake and were pretty sure this was Ica and this was confirmed by the driver when asked. Being dropped at the side of the road has also become quite natural for us, and here the locals are one step ahead and know we are going to Huacachina by taxi. Before you know it you are driving into an oasis surrounded by huge sand dunes. We had been recommended a ...

The Sand Dunes of Huacachina Oasis

... beach resorts that have spoilt much of the
western world. It was refreshing seeing the coastline in its natural state.

I consulted the information desk at the Ica bus terminal for an English speaking taxi driver (they are hard to find), and was appointed a friendly Kechuan fellow called Willem. With a six hour layover till my overnight coach trip, he made a couple of suggestions on filling in the time. ...

32. Huacachina - Open, pour. Be yourself once more

A travel blog entry by kesvic2013 on Jan 13, 2014

Four hours down the coast from Lima, we visited a place called Huacachina, a small village right in the middle of vast sand dunes. The village is built around a lagoon/oasis and the setting is beautiful. The village is basically 100% hotels/restaurants and tourism and you can tell that we are now on the main route for tourists. Especially here, conversations are much more about what they can sell you which is very different to what we have seen everywhere else. Anyway, the ...
