Ica and Huacachina

The city of Ica is 75 kilometers away from Paracas, which also has valuable attractions.

The Huacachina Lagoon is an oasis located five kilometers west of the Peruvian city of Ica, in the middle of the Pacific coastal desert. Of green waters, it arose due to the outcrop of underground currents, and around it, there is an abundant vegetation composed of palm trees, eucalyptus (introduced species) and the species of carob tree known as huarango, which serves for the rest of the migratory birds that pass For this region. All this contributes to making Huacachina one of the most colorful and beautiful places on the Peruvian coast.

Very popular in Huacachina for those looking for adventure activities are excursions in the dunes of the Ica desert with tubular vehicles (or dunebuggys) and sandslides on sand boardings.

Huacachina also lends itself to lunches coming from Paracas or Nazca.
For those who are interested in archeology, the Alfredo Bermudez Jenkings Regional Museum has a fascinating sample of fabrics, ceramics, and mummies of the Paracas and other culture. Among the skulls of the mummies are the trepanations made for medical reasons.
