  • The plaza was nice, but not the most exciting (compared to many others in Peru). We visited a nice coffee shop and had a drink. There were other restaurants that looked good, but that was about it. I ...  more »
  • Disorder and noise by taxis and motorcycle taxis who play Horn to call passengers. Do not go. Just went to buy the famous Texas Buendia, that also can be cmprrar elsewhere.

  • LInda Plaza, quite clean, is the ideal place to get the famous tiles of Ica. There are many places that sell them, do not buy from street vendors, ask to try before you buy and check which give them the same thing I have tasted.

  • I will always find peace at this place.
  • 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.
  • Plenty of great places to eat, very clean , although no as attractive as other plaza de armas ive seen
  • Nice and quiet place
  • Very busy and beautiful square surrounded by well kept colonial buildings. Definitely worth the visit.

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.
