Peru - Huacachina & Ica

22 °C

Huacachina, a fading 1970s resort town set around a natural lagoon in the desert amongst towering sand dunes....the accommodation optins are pretty ordinary but we were lucky to find a brand new, cheap and clean hotel called Hostal Sol De Ica. The town right near Ica is described as a gringo playgroung by the Lonely Planet and it was just that. Our 48hrs here (you don't need any longer) consisted of a pisco tour, which started out sampling some of the pisco distilled nearby, and ended in a roudy discotheque where we met a group of locals and danced the night away. Followed the next day by sand boarding on the giant dunes surrounding the town, and if we hadn't been feeling so seedy we may have opted for a dune buggy tour too! Instead we checked out sunset from the top of the dunes overlooking the vast desert, wow.
