    Nothing much going on, but you can go and have a nice walk around the plaza. Surely a bunch of restaurants, banks, strip malls and bakeries around, but I would recommend taking a taxi there, since there's nearly no parking spaces and traffic can be a bit rough.

Where to stay in Ica

Like a true desert oasis, the city of Ica tends not to worry about providing luxury facilities and services for its visitors. Instead, the comfort of its accommodations rests in their convenient placement on a spot of green in the middle of the desert. Choose from simple hotels and backpacker-friendly hostels in the middle of town, and a number of relaxed resort-style hotels dotted along the main arterial roads leading out of the urban area.
