If you know anything about Huacachina, you’ll think sand dunes. Sand dunes after sand dunes after sand dunes. Originally, Peruvians believed that the waters had healing powers and would use the waters to heal their bodies. These days, it’s mostly for tourists to go and sand buggy. If you’ve got the time, I do recommend it.
I’d like to talk about Lima. I mean, it is Peru’s Capital City, and it’s also one of the main cities people start their trip in. It’s a city you need to learn to love, a lot like Nicolas Cage films actually. It’s also one that has different districts and reputations depending on what stories you hear, people you meet. Leaving Lima, you’re also able to stop in at a lot of nice little places as well along the way to either Cusco/Arequipa.
