That’s no mirage! As the only desert oasis in South America, Huacachina is a unique must-see destination for all visitors to Peru. It is built around a natural lake in the desert and is surrounded by the largest sand dunes on the continent, making for some truly amazing scenery. Its location on the outskirts of Ica also makes it the perfect stop-off point for trips between Lima and southern cities such as Arequipa and Cusco.

Some of the most popular things to do in Huacachina include dune buggy rides and sandboarding on the epic sand dunes which encircle the town. When you’re not enjoying these thrilling activities, the oasis is also a wonderful place to relax next to the water, catch some sun or even go for a swim. In fact, local legend has it that the waters possess healing qualities and can cure ailments like arthritis, bronchitis or asthma.

Huacachina is home to some of the best nightlife in Peru and we definitely keep up with the competition, hosting some of the best parties in town next to our massive pool–an incredible place to enjoy some good vibes and good drinks. The hostel is conveniently located next to the oasis itself and also serves as a transport hub for the popular Peru Hop bus company. For sports lovers, Wild Rover is also the best spot to watch live sports on TV in Huacachina. All GAA, football, NFL, NBA, MLB, AFL, UFC, boxing, golf and all other games are played live on our huge screens. We’ve created a unique atmosphere here at Wild Rover Huacachina – a place that can be enjoyed by all kinds of travelers from all different walks of life.
