For a taste of the good life, Peruvian style, head to this top-end resort between Ica and Huacachina, a favorite getaway for Peruvian families. A cluster of whitewashed colonial-style buildings at the foot of the dunes are insterspersed with ponds and canals full of fish, and llamas roam freely on the grounds. Spacious rooms have balconies overlooking lush lawns, and suites have sunny courtyards and whirlpools. You can dine poolside or in a breezy gazebo at the restaurant
and enjoy such dishes as flounder with seafood sauce and spicy lomo saltado, an enormous pile of stir-fried beef, tomatoes, chips, and rice. Rent sandboards, play golf on the dunes, ride horseback, or spend the day in the spa. Book weekdays to save 20%.
