The Tranquil Lagoon

Huacachina

Huacachina is blessed with a tranquil lagoon that is believed to have curative properties, , flourishing foliage and lush palm trees. Its destination is in a barren desert in Peru. The lake is strongly believed to have some healing powers that have been attracting some tourists.

The Paradise

The paradise Huacachina is dubbed the 'Oasis of America,' this is  one of the last oasis' in North and South America. It may not be as beautiful as you want it to be because it is a picturesque village that has featured on the Peru’ s official currency, on  the back of the 50 Nuevo Sol note

The tranquil waters strongly contrast with the barren environment. Huacachina has become a National cultural heritage site.

Tourism

Over the years, the lagoon water levels have dropped to high evaporation during summer when the weather is at its extreme and the building of wells to support those who are living here. There have been a lot of support to ensure that the water never stop flowing in this magical town , water has been pumped from the lakes into the oasis

A visit to this oasis can be done when the weather is less severe for those who may not be able to cope with the hot weather.
