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.

  • Perfect for families and take advantage of the day in this place. You can see great natural beauty, flora and fauna characteristic of Japan, at the same time that can feed the fish and ducks of the place. A very nice landscape.

  • Really nice. A place for reflection within a hectic city. It appears to be in another place.

  • The truth is that I went without expectations to the garden... in fact, did not know existed. But he left me open-mouthed. It is a beautiful and very large garden. Never seen a so well done space and care to 100%. They have to go if or! The flora and fauna is wonderful, there are paths that indicate the why, which means every thing. There is a nursery with bonsai, among others. The entrance costs $1,000 CLP. I have attached photos. I recommend 10000000%

  • 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.
