Located on the Ica River in the desert areas of Peru's southern coast, the city of Ica stands as something of an oasis in the dry, barren landscape.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Thu): contemplate the waterfront views at Laguna de Huacachina, make a trip to Plaza de Armas, then do a tasting at Tacama, and finally learn about winemaking at El Catador. On your second day here, get outside with Outdoor Activities, then admire the striking features of Santuario del Senor de Luren, and then examine the collection at Regional Museum of Ica.
