Huacachina

Huacachina is a small village with only about 200 inhabitants in the middle of the Peruvian desert. The cool thing about it, is that it’s located around an oasis. It feels like walking in a movie-set, surrounded by enormous dunes that are looming around the village.

The most popular thing to do is take a tour in a sand buggy. You hop in one of the dozens that are driving around and seem to come right out of a Mad Max movie. They drive you around the desert at a high speed, up and down the dunes, like you are on a rollercoaster.

They make a few stops at the top of a dune, take out some surfboards, let you slide down the hill and pick you back up at the bottom. Really fun to do.

After a romantic sunset, we shook the sand out of our shoes and were ready to go to Paracas.
