  • This nice park-plaza is your first off-ship stop. It is quite nice, scenic and on ship-days full of local artisans with exceptionally good, unique items and at very reasonable prices. I found a steal ...  more »

  • One of the most beautiful avenues for strolling in Arica. Very close to the sea, you can enjoy the breeze and at the same time you are near the commercial center of the city.  more »

  • A good rest spot with plenty of seating and shade nearby. Slightly outside of the main drag so it's a bit quieter, but salesmen occasionally come by to pitch a product. Spend the hot hours in the shade, or the afternoon watching other vacationers and locals milling around.
  • It used to be an awesome park, with lots of trees and grass. But after some time, the local government thought it was a great idea to turn it into a place for local massive events, because it holds the view of Morro in the background. So, they replace almost all the green areas with concrete and steel and now it is a big space where the skaters play. By night is not a nice place, because of the lack of lights and the stupid backpackers who think that it is ok to camp in a city park, so be prepared for loud noises, people asking for coins, drunk hobos, smelly corners and even some fights and robberies. So, please, avoid it by night. During day it is a nice place to take pictures with morro on the back.
  • Very good view of the dock area and other historical monuments located around.
  • A beautiful place downtown lovely Arica!
  • Clean place to sit and rest for a bit
