Buses from/to Lima (5 hours), Arequipa (12 hours) and Nazca (2 hours) all go through Ica. From here take a taxi to Huacachina for around 5 soles (£1)

Good bus companies are Cruz Del Sur and Soyuz. Check out the map below to see where Ica is.

Casa de Arena (pictured above) is getting a makeover so it’s a little rough around the edges (think disused nightclubs, cold showers and no internet) but it does have a pool, nightly barbecues and friendly staff.<p>
Its sister hostel Casa de Arena II is just down the road and has a decent restaurant and bar for those looking for a more lively atmosphere.

Sandboarding in Huacachina, Peru

[ 9 ] April 23, 2011

Travelling through Peru? Sandboarding in Huacachina is a dream come true for adrenaline junkies with a need for speed.

Over the course of 3 hours you’ll race through the desert in sand buggies, bomb headfirst down some of the steepest slopes in the region and watch a spectacular sunset sink beneath the horizon.

Tours cost from 40 soles (£10) and include transportation – which is just as fun as the sandboarding itself – equipment, hostel pick-up and guides. The instructors at Desert Adventures are great, going beyond the call of duty to show you a good time.
