Carola del Sur

Av. Perotti s/n, Balneario de Huacachina, Huacachina, Ica, Peru

This place is party central—just follow the sounds of Bob Marley drifting on the night air and you'll be sure to end up here. Rooms are basic and are mostly dorms, but people don't come here to hang out in their rooms. Instead, they lounge by the pool, play with (and rescue their belongings from) Marvin, the resident spider monkey, and chow down on great Peruvian and international food in the central bar and restaurant. It's affiliated with Casa de Arena just up the road, and together they run an extensive and professional dune buggy service.

PROS

  • good restaurant and bar
  • pool has views of the dunes
  • Huacachina's largest and longest running dune buggy service

CONS

  • mostly basic dorm accommodations
  • terrible fluorescent lighting in the rooms
  • small windows
  • loud music makes getting an early night impossible
