Huacachina

The Hidden Oasis in Peru

Huacachina is a tiny town about 5 hrs south of Lima. It is essentially a tourist town consisting of hotels and restaurants centered around a lake surrounded by huge sand dunes - a picture perfect oasis. So perfect the town's lagoon is featured on the Peruvian 50 sol bill. There's really nothing else to do here except sandboard, dune buggy, and of course, soak in the awesome scenery.
