Landmark Tourist Spot
Watch the social life of Iquique fly by as you relax at Plaza Prat. Iquique's central square offers a spacious respite from the narrow, crowded streets that make up much of the city, serving as a social hub for young Chileans about to embark on a night out. The square houses several notable buildings, including the municipal theater and a clock tower that lights up into a beacon of color at night. Take a seat, compose yourself, and enjoy some quality people-watching. Plan to visit Plaza Prat and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Iquique attractions using our Iquique vacation builder.

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.
