Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • Despite the years this place remains the same beautiful and quiet, she exudes calm and is a place that should be visited by who walk through the streets of La Serena, we visited it several times and to go is the same gratifying feeling, a very clean and safe place.

  • It is a very nice place for walks. The garden is well maintained and has beautiful wildlife.

  • The ideal place to take many pictures, this Japanese Park is one of the largest in Latin America. It is in the middle of the city, but to the moment you enter, you feel in peace immediately. An ideal place for the family and to go with your partner.

  • 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.
  • Small peaceful garden... But your not allowed to sit or lay in the grass
  • A magical with beautiful landscapes, each site to which the eye is perfect for a photograph, animals living in an environment of peace with the visitors, noting that entry to just $1,000 CLP is insignificant compared to the beauty of the garden itself, must see for those who travel sector.

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.
