Moron Lagoon (The hidden oasis)

August 14, 2017

This time we decided to make a full day in Pisco, part of the Department of Ica…3 hours from Lima.

We started our day at 7am.

We made a stop at a on the road store that sells amazing oven cooked bread with cheese (and other fillings) for S/.1.50 …although the orange juice was excessively expensive S/.6 …anyways, we were with two friends from Venezuela and they had to try it.

Around 11 am we made it to the small town of Humay we you take a road that will take you straight to the Laguna Morón…here is where I need to tell you that we read and view some videos of how to get here and they all said you had to walk like an hour to get there….so not true, if you don’t have a 4×4 you can leave your car 10 minutes away from the Lagoon.

 

Once you get there you will be able to enjoy it sort of like a hidden oasis, and I mean sort of because the later it gets the more locals arrive. Still is isn’t touristic like Huacachina, for example.

You can sandboard and get into the water if you are smart (unlike me) and take a bathing suit with you.

Tip: Placido (a local) lives very close to the lagoon and rents kayaks (only 2) and ONE, only ONE board…it costs 10 soles the hour.

You have to get to the top to really see the whole shape of the lagoon…short hike, but the most difficult part if the fight against the wind because it carries all this sand that gets into every hole it can find.

It has the shape of the map of Peru !!

 

So, after going down the hill in the board, we went to eat lunch at the pier in Paracas…at a place called El Arizal which I totally recommend, the food was delicious!! And they also gave us a courtesy Pisco Sour that was perfect.

On the way to the pier we stopped at the “Mirador of Paracas” where you can see the beach and all the boats.

 

And after the amazing lunch….

Amazing almost sunset…

 

How much did we spent? around 60 soles each, between gas and food. (we didn’t pay the rent of the board because a nice guy lend it to us before his hour finished)
