The desert and especially the artificial oasis of Huacachina are a major tourist attraction. Since Peru has so much natural beauty to offer, I don’t get why everybody is going to an artificial oasis – but after all, I did, too. You can hike through the sand or – much easier – slide it down on a board. Sand jeeps drive you in wild circles up and down the dunes. Around the artificial lagoon, there are cozy restaurants and bars – hanging out one or two days out here can be very relaxing.


Reward for an exhausting hike uphill on the powdery sand of the oasis Huacachina. In the backdrop the city of Ica.
