Natural oasis surrounded by sand dunes in the Ica desert, where visitors can enjoy beautiful landscapes.
The Huacachina Lagoon has emerald green waters. Some studies have found that it arose due to the upwelling of subway currents and around it has appeared abundant vegetation composed of palm trees, eucalyptus and the typical guarangos, which serve as a resting place for migratory birds passing through this region. All this contributes to make Huacachina one of the most colorful and beautiful places of the Peruvian coast.
It is the main pride of the city of Ica, its high dunes have always challenged its visitors and residents, who have been establishing as a typical activity of the place to slide on them on pieces of wood, surfboards and even water skis.
Located 5.5 km southwest of the main square of the city of Ica.
Huacachina is no longer considered interesting only for its mythical lagoon, where you can take relaxing boat rides, but also for its sharp and perfect peaks, up to 250 meters of vertical risk. Today converted into a coveted destination for national and international sandboarding trials, its dunes, like the most renowned ski slopes in the world, have their own names: La Catedral, Santiaguillo, Orovilca, Norte Orovilva and Saraja.
The visit to this lagoon is free
