Ica: Beauty and Adventure in Peru's desert
If you have 2 or 3 days to add on to your trip to Peru, here's an Idea. Ica is a 9$/4 hour bus ride from Lima, and it feels like it takes you to another planet. Barren land , colorful skies, and 400ft tall sand dunes. Huacachina in particular is a true dessert oasis just outside of the city of Ica where you can get a nice hotel in the oasis, and spend your day sandboarding the sand dunes, or catching air in a dune buggy.
