La Serena

City of Churches

Packed with old stone churches in a unique urban landscape, La Serena represents one of Chile's oldest settlements, equally popular with architecture buffs and beachgoers. Many La Serena holidays focus on its lengthy developed coastline, backed by comfortable hotels and neat restaurants. Tourists seeking more from their La Serena vacation venture deeper into the surrounding countryside, where charming villages and vineyards share the landscape with modern astronomical observatories, making the most of the area's exceptionally clear night skies and favorable atmospheric conditions. La Serena is in Coquimbo Region. Take a peek at our international travel planner: La Serena and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in La Serena

La Serena provides a varied selection of sleeping options, with the area between the main bus station and the town center featuring at least one hostel on every street. Despite this abundance of lodgings, many hotels book up fast at the height of the tourist season (summer: January-February), and some refuse visitors on single-night stays. If you're looking for the ultimate in space and comfort, consider renting a furnished apartment on the coastline.
