A remote oasis amid tall dunes in the desert, who knew that this existed in Peru? Huacachina is a must-add to your Peru Bucket List. Here you can adventure on dune buggies, sandboard down steep dunes, and end the day with one of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see. This is a desert paradise.

A Stunning Desert Oasis: Huacachina

Ideally located between the National Reserve of Paracas and the pisco vineyards of Ica, Huacachina is a small and charming town filled with adventure. After traveling through flat deserts for about 4 hours from Lima, you will arrive at a true oasis in the desert: a small lagoon surrounded by cozy hostels, hotels, and restaurants. The locals here drive sand buggies down the streets and are the first to share some of the myths of their home.


Legend has it that the tragic love story of an a Inca warrior and Inca princess created the lagoon. They met in the middle of the dunes, but shortly after the warrior was killed in the war, and the princess was so consumed by her sadness she cried enough tears to create the lagoon and turned into a mermaid. Many people say if you visit the lagoon at night you can hear her wailing, and even see her tail splashing in the distance.
