Huacachina, a fun oasis


View Around The World on manolo84's travel map.

Following my adventures in cold Huaraz, I decided to renew with the sun and warmth by doing a pit stop in the Peruvian desert, in Huacachina.

Located in the south of Lima, Huacachina is a little village near Ica, and has the particularity of being built around an oasis in the middle of the desert. Needless to say that there are not much to do there, not even a vibrating night-life, but tour agencies offer fun buggy tours in the sand dunes, as well as offering to practice sandboarding. So no need to stay more than 2 or 3 days, but Huacachina is the perfect place to have a bit of fun in the sand and relax with a cold beer whilst enjoying the amazing sunsets.

Unfortunately for some people, locals and tourists, the desert is also a huge waste... <img class='img' src='https://tp.daa.ms/img/emoticons/icon_sad.gif' width='15' height='15' alt=':(' title='' />
