An incredible city built around a beautiful small natural lake in desert, called “Oasis of America” attracts many tourists fascinated by sports of sandboarding and taking dune buggy rides on sand dunes. Huacachina is a village in the Ica Region, in southwestern Peru. It is located in the Ica Province, near the city of Ica in the Ica District.There’s an interesting story told about this small region. Legend holds that the lagoon was created when a beautiful native princess was apprehended at her bath by a young hunter. She fled, leaving the pool of water she had been bathing in to become the lagoon. The folds of her mantle, streaming behind her as she ran, became the surrounding sand dunes. And the woman herself is rumored to still live in the oasis as a mermaid.
