Peru’s oasis

Huacachina, a desert oasis in Peru

The Huacachina oasis is a big tourist draw. People come here to experience the feel of a Saharan-style oasis and play on the sand dunes.

There are several great resorts and hotels on the lake and many tour agencies that sell dune buggy rides and sandboarding trips. It’s also very popular for sunset photography.

Practical Info Practical Info icon

Lots of tour agencies in Lima, Paracas and Ica sell day tours to Huacachina. If you want to see the sunset over the sand dunes, it’s best to spend the night here.
