Iquique

3.9
Thanks to the city's position on the Pacific coast, vacations in Iquique appeal to beachgoers, paragliders, bodyboarders, nature lovers, photographers, and fans of picture-perfect sunsets. One of South America's major ports, Iquique developed during the saltpeter boom of the 19th century. Though the city preserves much of its Georgian and Victorian architecture from that golden period, Iquique's main claim to fame remains its duty-free shopping zone. Some tourists plan a trip to Iquique to shop for laptops and perfumes, others come to try their luck at swanky casinos, while still others get their dose of adrenaline surfing the nearly perfect swells coming in from the north. Iquique is in Tarapaca Region. Make the most of your holiday in Iquique by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Chile itinerary builder site .

Where to stay in Iquique

For dependable chain options, look for hotels located along the beachfront--a good area for anyone visiting Iquique to swim, surf, and paraglide. Hotels near the beach also tend to stay relatively expensive throughout the year, so if you're visiting on a budget, consider one of the city's many hostels. Rental apartments distributed across Iquique accommodate visitors looking for more privacy and space.
