What I love about my neighborhood is quiet, is in the middle of city, is not noise and chaotic as the downtown,
There are many colectivos( taxis that u share the space with other people) the cost of the colectivos is one sol and fifty cents per person ( 1.50)
Smoke outside, no eating in the rooms, Do not trough the paper inside the toilet, if you break something you will have to pay for it, hallway light must be off if nobody is in there
My fiance and I stayed with Luis for one night and it was a great experience! The home was clean, spacious and safe and he was a good host! He had breakfast waiting for us in the morning which was a lovely surprise. He organized the tour of Huacachina (Dune-buggy and sand-boarding) for us and was waiting for us until it was over. He picked and dropped us off at the bus station and helped us get a collectivo to the Plaza de Armas in the evening to meet friends for dinner.
La habitación es muy cómoda, el colchón es genial, estaba muy limpia y ordenada, la casa es agradable, aunque no queda en una zona de la ciudad que uno pueda recorrer facilmente a pie.
Luis ofrece un servicio de guía y transporte por los atractivos de Ica (Dunas, sandboarding, comida callejera, Islas ballestas, Paracas y viñedos), por 250 soles por persona. Durante dos días nos transportó en su camioneta y nos trató muy bien. El servicio puede ser más costoso que si se hace por cuenta propia, pero la comodidad lo vale.
Lo recomiendo totalmente.
Luis is a great host, he picks us in the bus stop and leave us too. The room was extremely comfortable and nice. We make the tour to Paracas and Huacachina by our own and the tour to the vineyard with Luis. This was one of the best stops.
We had a wonderful 4-nights stay at Luis' house in the North of Ica. The room was spacious, clean and we've got plenty of good sleep due to the tranquility and the comfortable matress! Luis and his family are perfect hosts; very friendly and helpful in every instance. They also make for good tour guides. We would come back everytime! Pickup and drop-off at the bus station was a big plus.
Luis was a fantastic host. He organised the tours of Huacachina (Sand-buggy and sand-boarding) and his brother took us on the bicycle tour of the wineries/distilleries. Luis also took us on a street-food tour of Ica where we got to try a range of great-tasting dishes.
We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wishing to have a local's tour of Ica.
Huacachina is about 15 minutes by taxi and the neighbourhood felt safe.
Luis was a genial host and helped show us a good time. I wouldn't recommend staying here if you're wanting to wander and explore on your own, since you'll have to take a long cab ride to get anywhere interesting. It's probably also best if you're with a friend or two. Also note that when you pay for something like his Street Food Tour, what he's doing is just driving you to a spot, showing you what's there, and letting you buy your own -- not what you might expect if you've done food tours in other cities.
Luis was a fantastic host! My husband and I had a great time! Luis provided a full service tour and the accommodations were quite comfortable. We had a massive room with a queen bed and private bathroom. Everything was immaculately clean. We opted into the tour package which was 130 soles per person in addition to the Airbnb. We arrived at about 2;30pm and Luis picked us up from the bus station, brought us back to the house, let us get settled in, and then took us to Huacachinna for sand boarding and dune buggying at sunset. He arranged everything for us. After that adventure, he took us on a street food tour where we tried everything from cow heart to picarones. He also took us to a chocolate place with caramel and chocolate covered pecans that was delicious. The street food & chocolate were in addition to the tour (we spent like 30 soles between the two of us and had a massive amount of food). In the morning, his mom prepared a breakfast feast with fresh fruits, raw pecans in the shell, pomegranates, a potato and meat stew-like dish, spaghetti with a queso-like sauce, and fresh passion fruit juice. After breakfast, we then went on a bike ride to a few vineyards for tours and tastings. At Tacama, there was a Paso Horse show too. Luis and his family were extremely accommodating and truly, wonderful hosts.
