  • The cathedral is closed after an earthquake 15 years ago. The plaza itself is nothing exciting .. 5 minutes and you are ready yo go.  more »
  • ICA is a CHAOTIC city, every square metre is constructed and people and cars everywhere. Thus, the Plaza de armas is the single "breathe" more open area which is very though hardly can be noticed by the incessant frenzy that raged all day

  • Beautiful place with restaurants and tourist' s cites.
  • I will always find peace at this place.
  • Nice place, nothing special though.
  • 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.
