Ica is a beautiful city located in the southern part of Peru, in the middle of a green valley surrounded by the desert. This city stands out thanks to its warm climate, gorgeous white sand dunes and to a beautiful oasis known as Huacachina. Here you can explore the surroundings of the oasis or go for a ride with buggies out in the desert. The city of Ica also owns one of the best archaeological museums of Peru, “The Regional Museum of Ica”.
Ica’s splendid climate, sunny and dry all year round has made Ica the center of an important agricultural region. Commodity crops are cotton, grapes, asparagus, olives and other produce. It is known by Peruvians as the “Land of the Sun”.
Ica boasts a thriving wine and Pisco industry and here you can visit traditional vineyards located in the countryside and famous for its Pisco, fiery liquor distilled from grapes that was developed after the Spaniards arrived and takes its name from the port in the area.
