Ranked #4 in Peru Tourism

Huacachina is the only desert oasis that can be found in South America and is truly a place that you couldn’t really imagine to be situated somewhere between the sand dunes at the distance of a one hour drive from the Pacific coast and only few kilometers from the city of Ica.

Huacachina Peru Attractions

The size of the town is very small and yet there are still some sites to check out, such as numerous vineries and bodges, Museo Regional de Ica, Museo de Piedras Grabadas and others. Several sport activities are possible in the town as well, the most exciting of which probably is sand-boarding. Walking all the way up to the dunes is also another unforgettable experience. Even though it is not the easiest task and will take you a lot of energy, all the effort will become worthy once you will see the amazing view from the top of the dunes.
