  • I usually visit fairs and markets, but this was a total disappointment. Unfortunately you are wrong, dirty, outside smells of urine and your environment is not pleasant. I think that not worth visiting it, I personally recommend thousand times more agricultural Terminal.

  • While in the old town of Iquique and it might be a tourist place, turns out to be a dangerous place, with lack of cleanliness, with a very low standard in its facilities.

  • The dishes we were good, tasty and abundant. The problem is that it took much to some and all ate at the wrong time. The Pippin Ceviche was fresh and good.

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.
