The Peruvian coast goes from the border with Ecuador on the North to the border with Chile on the South. It is a narrow plain, largely arid except for valleys created by seasonal rivers.

The Southern coast of Lima, in the Ica Region, includes the main valleys of Chincha, Pisco, Ica and the Nazca Rio Grande which have always been a great place for human settlements.

The Region of Ica that is divided into several provinces amongst which Ica and Nazca. This region is widely known for the Paracas culture (800 BC, -100 from our era) and the Nazca culture (100 BC and 600 from our era).

These cultures are notorious for their textiles and their ceramics as well as the lines traced in the desert and the great Cahuachi ceremonial centre. Treks in the Ica valley and the Rio Grande de Nazca basin give you the opportunity to see Paracas and Nazca relics. Nowadays, the majority of the archaeological remains are buried in the desert sand but several archaeological missions revealed their villages and public centre.

Ica is well known to many travelers in Peru, due to its Huacachina oasis that is situated between enormous sand dunes. The oasis attracts many tourists as well as Peru’s rich families, due to the variety of adventurous sand activities that are available, such as sand-boarding and sand tours on special sand buggies.
