  • It is a city with a calm pace, but in the last 2 years the crime rate has been tremendous. There are many thieves, especially of cars, and they do much harm, since in addition to steal something from the interior of vehicles, broken glasses, burst covers, i.e.: damage from harm. The police apparently can do anything about, said by the inhabitants themselves of Iquique. The beach is well, without being anything from the other world, as it has plenty of space. If you go in January and February, there are many people and they are side by side without any privacy there are no services on the beach, which means you must bring everything to spend the day. There are some sellers of drinks, and the street that pass offering ice cream... Recently this year saw a bar serving food on the beach... The advantage of Iquique is that no rain, which ensures a high percentage of sunny days, although the water is pretty cold

  • The cavancha Avenue is always in motion. It is an area full of life, clean beach and heated showers. Recommended for a late family member
