Stay in Huacachina or Paracas?

Hi - I'm arriving on a Friday morning via an overnight bus from Arequipa. Hoping to walk around Ica during the day and dun buggying/sandboarding in the evening, and then the Ballestas Islands the next morning and off to Lima. For Friday night, would you recommend staying over in Huacachina or Paracas? I've heard Paracas is higher end, but in terms of nightlife, value/costs, food, and scheduling, which would you recommend? Thanks!
