El Carmelo

Top choice historic hotel in Ica

This romantic roadside hotel on the outskirts of town inhabits a delightful 200-year-old hacienda that has undeniable rustic charm. Rooms exude a classic elegance but also boast mod-cons and are very comfortable. However the stars of the show are the grounds with courtyards, a wonderful wood and cane gazebo and an open-fire for the chilly desert nights.

There’s a good restaurant plus a winery onsite. Take a taxi from the city center (S5).
