Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Spend an afternoon exploring an old-style Chilean walking street at Baquedano Street. Start from the center of town and walk to the other end so that your trip along the street brings you to a beach at the other end. Take time to experience the small shops, restaurants, and cafes you pass. Stop by the small kiosks of artisans and their goods for a handcrafted souvenir. Be aware that the restaurant prices are said to be high here, but some offer good happy hour deals.

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.
