We have had such a wonderful time at Banana’s Adventure Hostel in Huacachina! We added this to our trip after doing a 5 day trek to Machu Picchu and it is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate! As soon as we arrived we were thrilled about the warm weather. The desert is beautiful and the oasis is such an amazing sight amidst the dunes. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and were excited about the included activities.
The first day we arrived we hung out at the pool enjoying some refreshments and food! We ate the BBQ for dinner and it was delicious, we were very satisfied. We were woken early in the morning by an earthquake and we decided to take the opportunity to hike to the top of a dune to watch the sunrise. It was not disappointing! The hostel is centrally located so it is easy to access everything in Huacachina, including the dunes.
We then took the sand boarding tour and had a blast! The dune buggy ride was thrilling and the desert is beautiful. The sand boarding was so much fun! We felt like children again. It was nice to arrive back at the hostel to shower (so. much. sand.) and eat delicious food.
Bananas has everything you could need with great prices for the area. I would recommend!
