Hotel El Huacachinero in Ica


Our adventures of trip to Peru 2010 It will take us to a place quite different than usual, to the Oasis of Huacachina.

He Huacachina Oasis It is a true natural oasis among the white sand dunes 5 km from Ica. Its beauty comes from underground water currents that made abundant palm and eucalyptus vegetation bloom, until it became a natural spa in 1940.

When we decided to come to sleep at this magical place, we had the dilemma between choosing between the town of Ica or the Laguna. Finally, we could see that the spa is not what it once was and the prices are very affordable on the dates of the trip. So we ended up in The Huacachinero.

The reservation, like all of this trip, we have made through Inkadina Travel & Tours, the receptive local agency that has managed several services in Peru, but, as in Lima, it can be done through its own web.

The price of this accommodation is around $ 30-50 USD per night and room

The Location It is privileged, in the Laguna del Oasis de Huacachina. In recent years its population has increased, currently the Huacachina Lagoon is being fed by a well that supplies water

Their rooms, although old, they are cozy enough to make the stay as pleasant as possible. They are also very well lit.

The extreme cleaning It is another of the fundamental characteristics of this accommodation and its rooms.

Other services include its Restaurant - Bar, its Pool, its Laundry, its excursions through the dunes (Tour in Buggies & Sandboarding), the availability of Safe,…

Back we offer you our usual "GUIDED VISIT" of the accommodation With our impressions.

The first thing we would highlight about Huacachinero is that it shows that it is newly remodeled. It looks small, as taken from the package, with good taste in decoration.

his Location It is not as privileged as those on the front line of Laguna, and we could even say that it is in an "ugly" back street that on the dates we were was up and under construction.

Talking about his room we would also be sorry, since what appears in the official photos (in this article available) to reality, is a world away, since it barely has a "hole" for a window, a closet and a bedside table, totally lacking any type of "complements".

Of course, everything is in perfect condition cleaning and order.

He bath However, if you meet expectations, including all kinds of accessories (gels, shampoos), but without great flaunting.

But what more than compensates for the decision to choose this accommodation in the Laguna, are without a doubt your instalations. Its pool is surrounded by abundant vegetation and wooden balconies. From this solarium you can see the greatness of the dunes that surround us and use the bar / restaurant service (with very moderate prices) to take advantage of its phenomenal terrace. He breakfast It is served here too (and it is more than correct)

Also comment that there is WIFI throughout the hotel that works correctly among its PRO, but does not have luggage service among its CONTRAS.

The we would recommend? Because of its facilities, NO doubt, they are one of the experiences of this privileged place before facing an afternoon of Buggies or a walk through the Lagoon. For its rooms, it simply complies. Valuing both, we will leave consumer taste the decision.
