Spending the night in a real life oasis in the desert!

Spend A night In A Desert Oasis.

If you ever wanted to spend the night watching the stars in a desert oasis then look no further than Huacachina Peru’s desert oasis.

It is not a huge village and spending any more than 2 -3 days will be enough to see all it has to offer. Located just 5km from the city of Ica lies a picturesque lagoon surrounded by the biggest sand dunes you might ever see. How could this be possible? The dunes and masses of marine fossils prove that this area once lay underwater. The town was originally built as a resort for the Peruvian higher classes. And what remains now is this serene desert oasis. For a few moments it will play havoc with your mind; palm trees, water and peddle boats in the desert. Locals have taken advantage of this unusual setting in Huacachina and set up hotels, hostels, cafés and restaurants, souvenir stalls and small tour companies around their natural resort. src

Dune Buggy Trips

The Dune Buggy Trips are not to be missed all include sand boarding. You can take a tour from your hotel for about  ($31). These tours usually last a couple of hours and include sand boarding.  No matter what age you are or how much of an adrenalin junkie you are, you are bound to enjoy every minute of the tour. The rollercoaster feeling of the tour can vary depending on how loco your driver is! All the dune buggy drivers are locals so know these dunes of Huacachina like the back of their hands. They all take different routes through the dunes taking you to some crazy heights and curves to sand board down.

There is a nightclub in this small desert oasis aptly named Huacafuckinchina. This nightclub is busy most days, but especially Wednesday through to Saturday. It’s known for wild parties to the early hours of the morning. During the day, it tidies itself up and opens as a café. src
