From Ica to Ocucaje Hacienda in 30 Minutes

We were pleasantly surprised during our recent visit to the Ocucaje Hacienda just outside of Ica on the way to Nazca. This hotel is not just a typical stopover place to sleep and then continue on. We enjoyed great criollo(Peruvian) food while relaxing at the hacienda and exploring the grounds. Staff was very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The grounds were lined with beautifull old shade trees and the view of the vinyards in front of the arenales (sand dune mountains) was spectacular! This was our first visit to Ocucaje. We would highly recommend this hotel as a place to relax and unwind or as stopover on the way to Nazca or Huacachina Oasis.
