                                Huacachina, Ica, Peru: Desert Oasis and Giant Sand Dunes

Huacachina is a village of Peru, near the city of Ica, about 4 hours from Lima. The scenery might make you feel like you were instantly teleported into the middle of the Sahara Desert.
Nested in the heart of impressive sand dunes, the Huacachina desert oasis looks like a miracle of Nature. It is the last place where you would expect to find such a body of water!
In fact, desert oases are extremely rare in the Americas. Many say that Huacachina is the one and only desert oasis in the whole of South America.
The desert lagoon had been quite popular with the people of Lima until the 1950’s, but it was then more or less abandoned. It was only in the 1990’s that a few visionary people and businessmen brought it back to life. Nowadays, it made it to the list of tourism hotspots in Peru.
