South America Day 29-31: Paracas and Huacachina
Early Saturday morning, I left Lima on a bus ride to Paracas. One of the main things to do in Paracas is visit the National Reserve. The reserve is meant to protect desert and marine ecosystems.
There I did a short trek in the desert with some spectacular views.
Paracas National Reserve is one of the more unique places that I’ve visited. I’ve never seen a desert adjacent with an ocean before.
Next, I took a bus to Huacachina, the desert oasis.
There, I hopped on a dune buggy and went sandboarding.
The sand dunes were stunning. The dune buggy ride was also super fun. Our driver drove off huge sand dunes like a stunt driver.
Finally, we got to catch the desert sunset
