Peru: Go to Huacca China- a oasis outside Ica

It is amazing!

As one part of last weekend when we traveled we wen´t to Huacca China, a backpackers paradise next to Ica. I might have told you before that I love the desert, but I love love love, the desert. It is so distant from what I am used to. Okay, I acknowledge that the sand itself is a bit tricky to like. It is everywhere, and I mean everywhere. It almost got into my Canon 5D as well after Martin carried the camera to the top of one of the sand dunes.

Due to it is a travel paradise, you can get american or continental breakfast, which feels like a gift send from above when eating food you are not used to for over two months. Sometimes you miss the simple, and it is often the food.

A critique not to Huacca China people but the people who travel there. Don´t throw trash in the sand dunes, bring it with you down for god´s sake. Pollution is already a problem and trash looks so awful. Well, not that´s said.

The hotel was of no high standard, but cheap (60 sol for two persons as noted in earlier posts about Huacca China). It is more of hostels since the people staying here are backpackers

Me and Martin played around in the sand, or walked to be honest, for 2 hours (cursing) to get to the top of one of the dunes, but when reaching the top, all the strength just came right back when watching the view.

Enjoy.

  1. En fantastisk ställe ni var på.
    Jag gillar sand. Verkar vara så rogivande. Fina foto blev det också.

    • I will read, if my good damned internet will work. Now I am answering in the admin panel since this is the only way to answer a comment! *sigh* It was, I love the desert!

  2. I absolutely LOVE the texture and subtlety of colour on the sand dunes. Now I know why you love the desert! Beautiful!
