Jardin del Corazon, La Serena

4.8
Stroll the gardens of Jardin del Corazon, a Japanese-themed park dedicated to the twinning of La Serena and the Japanese city of Tenri. Built in 1994 with support from Japanese mining companies in Chile, the garden was designed by architect Akira Ohira. Roam along picturesque cherry trees and koi ponds, passing small bridges and undulating paths, or rest on a bench and watch ducks, swans, and turtles. Don't miss the park's bonsai tree collection.

  • Even though it's a pretty garden, could get more out of the place. Admission is $1,000.-pp.

  • This place is wonderful, the entrance has a cost of $1000, or anything! It is beautiful, very clean, has ducks, even saw a Swan and koi fish. I was really amazed with this place, it's a must-see in La Serena!

  • A unique following oriental philosophy in terms of the distribution of plants, shrubs, trees in absolute harmony with other elements such as water, aquatic animals, construction and deliver this haven for visitors in general.

  • Me gustó mucho, pero fui a la rapida, así que no pude contemplar, solo mirar.
  • Very peaceful and well-maintained Japanese garden. Worth a visit if you're into this sort of thing (I spent 10-15 minutes there, it's not very big). Skip it if you're not.
  • This is a peaceful place in the middle of an unorganized city of La Serena. It costs only 1000 pesos and it well fits in visit plan, because it doesn't need more than 2 hours. It is well located a couple miles from the ocean and few yards from the center of the city.
  • Beautiful and serene spot amid busy streets.
  • Beatiful place

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.
