The UK’s Telegraph featured Peru’s Huacachina village in Ica among 21 most dramatic in the world.

The UK’s Telegraph lists Peru’s Huacachina as one of 21 most dramatic villages in a recent article.

“Dramatic” truly is the right word for Huacachina. It is a desert oasis transformed into a resort town for tourists.

The list includes tiny settlements from all over the world: from India to Italy, Australia to Yemen, and of course, Peru.

Huacachina is the only village from Peru that made the list.

Andina reports that the nearby dunes are used for sand boarding and buggy riding. The dunes are considered to be some of the highest in all of Peru.
