Amid the rolling sand dunes of this Peruvian desert, an oasis springs from nowhere, adding life to the landscape. Legend has it that the lagoon was created when a princess fled her would-be captor and left the water she had been bathing in, which became the lagoon. Today, this naturally occurring oasis has a surrounding village, Huacachina, with a population of about 100 residents.
