Where to stay
Ica can be visited in one or two days. We recommend taking a tour from Lima and getting to know the most important landmarks during the day and then return to the city at night. If you want to stay in Ica we recommend booking a hotel in Paracas or near the Huacachina Lagoon so you can enjoy the landscape.
