    Not to be missed by its nature, a stunning wildlife that cannot fail to see if he goes to la Serena (North of Chile). Ideal for children by the diversity of its fauna, really amazing. Before you go you must iformarse well dates and time that will arrive before shipping. You can not get directly if find out the conditions of climate and procedures. It is a quiet area and limited vacancies.

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.
