  • It is a place really incredible. Whenever I go to Arica, I like to go visit him. Recommended wearing layers (can make much heat, wind, or cold) lead parka, comfortable shoes, Cap. Consult the doctor for diuretic to altitude sickness or passed bad (the leaf of coca and not enough chachacoma). It is worth to go!

  • We drove up from Codpa valley to Putre which is manageable in a rental car, however takes around six hours with many fotostops as there are pittoresque pueblos, geoglyphs and so much nature in blossom...  more »
  • I drove from Arica until the Lauca National Park. Despite the relatively short snippet, of 120 km, the road leading from the city to the Park's heavy traffic, because trucks pass carrying goods from the port of Arica until Bolivia, which makes the dangerous and exhausting. But let's talk about the good stuff. Upon arriving at the Park, we are presented with the exuberant nature and the unique landscape of that inhospitable place. The twin volcanoes are the flagship. You can spend hours contemplating and thanking the privilege of being there. Program to make the ride leaving Arica with caution, because you will leave from sea level to approximately 4000 m altitude.
