In the current territory of Paracas, it flowered the ancestral civilisation of the culture known as Paracas, during the pre-Incan period. This culture was characterized by its textile art, very advanced for that period, due to its funerary rituals and the cranium trepanations, which were made to remove bad spirits. The Paracas culture is also known for deforming their heads until having them lengthened with a conical shape. The archaeological remains of this culture were found by the archaeologist Julio C. Tello in 1925. In 1820, six ships disembarked at its coast, and were part of the Ejército Libertador, from the Freedom Expedition of Peru, commanded by the General José de San Martín. The name Paracas means “sand rain” due to the strong winds that bring sand remains, typical of this territory (those winds reach speeds of 20 miles/32 kms per hour).
Huacachina is a small town located in the desert of Ica. It surrounds a emerald colored lake of the same name, which is a true oasis amidst the sands. It is a sought after destination by local and international tourists, and it is a highlight among the touristic attractions of the peruvian coast. Due to its location in the desert, it is possible to practice sandboard and take a dune buggy ride through the dunes.
