  • If you're going to La Serena can not stop going to Isla Damas, the travel is a little long but worth, it takes all day, I advise to do so on a tour because they deal with all the permissions that are required to navigate for example. A gift to the view, impossible to is explain with words, you have to go and experience with this place. We could see in the way foxes, guanacos. Already on the island, the famous penguins, cormorants and many varieties of birds, marine lobitos everywhere.

  • Great natural reserve, but you cant swim or stay at the island
  • Great location best hideaway from La Serena
  • A very beautiful place, surrounded by marine species. Wind and water have created wonders in the rocks.

  • One book that it is worth knowing, Conaf should empower the fishermen who make the journey in boats, since the interest and passion have it, but they need to knowledge and deal with tourists, estobes can be improved, but it is very interesting the vuaje I recommend visiting it
