A crescent moon shines upon the tented candlelit dinner elegantly spread out on desert dunes. Only you’re in Peru, not Morocco. Your excursion comes courtesy of Hotel Paracas, a desert oasis overlooking Paracas Bay, 155 miles south of Lima. Founded in 1944 and rebuilt in 2010, the 120-guestroom getaway has 2 pools and a full-service spa. During the day, explore the mysterious Nazca Lines, pre-Incan geoglyphs etched in the desert. Or sail to the Ballestas Islands to see penguins and the blue-footed booby. End your stay with a Pisco winery tour.
