It is good to know the history in its full concept and vision, this means that it is important to know the saltpeter, forms of work, efforts and administration, the lives of workers and their families in so dramatic a way of life and other differentiations ranges.

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.
