  • Beautiful valley, large and extensive, excellent option to rest, alone, in couple, family or friends. The people are beautiful, with crafts and traditional foods. Highly recommended.

  • The Elqui Valley how villager of the Elqui province is one of the largest pride we have. It is a place where you can find space to relax or go out with friends always in contact with nature, a sky that never ceases to amaze, and a view that comes to surprise. The only drawback is that for the people inside the prices are considerably high to what one can be used, but it is a detail if one is adequately equipped. Few things I recommend as much as going to the Valley

  • It's a bit far, but when we get there, it's beautiful. The Valley is very beautiful, picturesque villages. Stop at the checkpoint for a ride to the end then continue its road to admire the surfers and wind surfers kit brush.

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.
