  • It's nice for its ornamentation, but nothing out of the ordinary in terms of an avenue along the shore of the sea. So yes, there are many restaurants around and one that other positions close to buy handmade things

  • This avenue is quite extensive and entertaining. There are many restaurants and bars to visit in both paths. In summer, to that of the 19-22 hrs, there is some congestion, but not to despair. Recommend walk it, it is very nice, especially at sunset.

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.
