    together with the walk Baquedano, the best of the city properly such. It was nice to walk at night, with the fresh breeze, listening to the sound of the sea and watching the lights of the buildings. I was surprised that a place seemed pretty sure, compared to others that I saw in Iquique

    I went today to stroll along the waterfront from the beach, the rich, cold and clean water. Not so clean sand but was still a recommendable walk. It's idea to try, bicycling or simply soak up the Sun

    I have been before in this beach. I attest that is better. There are many cleaning and maintenance. I recommend it for couples, groups of friends, family, and even in solitary. Elmar is tempered in a wave, suitable for swimming and learn surfing, given that teach it. In October, the average is between 16 ° C and 20° C, almost cloudless blue sky. In sum, a good beach
