Your eyes are telling the truth.
Huacachina is no mirage -- it's a tiny town of less than 100 people, located in the middle of the Peruvian desert.
As The Huffington Post warned last year:
The tiny town (population: about 100) of Huacachina is centered around a charming oasis, but it's drying up. What's more, local authorities are having a hard time refilling it with water from a nearby spring.
So please, take a look at Huacachina in all its glory, and, if we were you, we'd plan our trip sooner than later.
