Southern Peru is the most famous part of the country’s tourism. Lake Titicaca, Cusco, the Colca Canyon, Machu Picchu … Why not start an incredible journey through the unique experience of surfing … in the sand dunes!
Just a 5 hours bus ride from Lima to the south by the Peruvian Panamerican Highway, hidden behind the first sand dunes of the city of Ica’s desert, the beautiful oasis of Huacachina will welcome you with its young population and its bars and restaurants circling the warm oasis’ lagoon.
Alone, in couple or in groups, Huacachina offers in addition to its vibrant nightlife rich sensation for a few hours through an experience in one of the greatest Latin American deserts. Want to join the ocean through the sand dunes in a buggy? To do sandboarding on tracks that could compete with blue and red runs? It is possible from fifty Nuevos Soles per person.
Confirmed Sandboarder or newbie skier, the experience is accessible to anyone at any level (writer guarantees you!). On any position, slipping on the sand is now possible with a board and some wax (to remove the friction between the board and sand). Guides driving their buggies (all-terrain vehicle really sensational) will advise you and you will see during few runs this beautiful desert beginning at Ica’s doors. Ica, precisely, is the capital of the now famous pisco and many wines, you will also have the opportunity to discover them in a group or private tour.
Arrival in the oasis of Huacachina in the late afternoon to enjoy the sunset over the sand dunes and experience the nightlife and local cocktails of the oasis. The next morning, head out into the desert with your board, your SUNSCREEN, your camera and your good mood for two hours of thrills as the temperatures are not too high. Lunch at the oasis before visiting wineries of wines and Pisco through the city of Ica in grouped or private turn (3-4 hours tour) for a return to 17.00 and the beginning of the rest of your trip!
