One tourist attraction not be missed though is the Sand dune buggy riding and sandboarding. Huacachina is an Oasis, you really appreciate it when looking down upon it from a Sand Dune. You are taken up in these wicked 7 seater buggies and spend 2 hours riding the dunes in the buggy and on a sandboard (or in my case on your butt!!!). I managed to snap a snowboard in half!!! Unfortunately the whole ride didnt end too well when our buggy got a flat and we got back an hour late in the cold!!! Not their fault i guess, i still recommend Bananas as a comapny to do it with.
HOT TIPS for travellers:
(1) Book your tour directly at bananas office to save 5 soles.
(2) Dont be concerned with buses from Ica to Lima, then run every 6 minutes!!! The trip is 4.5 hours. Ask the cab driver to take you to the company called Soyuz, the trip will cost 17 soles.
