  • It's a good place to visit, while you are waiting for the bus to other cities. It's not huge, but you can observe real ruins of 4~5 other different cultures of ancient Peru.
  • Ok, small. Many better places to visit
  • Small museum but the exhibit is interesting.
  • This is a surprisingly nice museum. They have many artifacts from several eras and people groups of the area. It also has lots of information in both English and Spanish, and the price of admission is quite cheap, only S/. 7.5 ($2.25).
  • They show in a very didactic way of our culture periods pre-Inca PARACAS cultures, NAZCA, WARI until the conquest of the INCAS. Spectacular trepanation, of the Paracas culture, how are displayed.

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.
