  • This arch in itself isn't a destination, it is part of the Paseo Civico in Tacna which is a very nice central esplanade with landscaping, free wifi and an imposing Cathedral.  more »
  • Just an Arc in the Central Plaza, nothing special about it. However you can get a really good shoe shine here cheap.  more »
  • This iconic Arco is a classic tourist visit in Tacna. It has also 2 of the most important heroes in Peruvian history. The plaza in general is nice although during the night, it should have more lights...  more »

Where to stay in Tacna

You'll find the bulk of Tacna's accommodations along the Circunvalacion Sur ring road. Hotels range from mid-priced and comfortable, to more exclusive and luxury options offering lots of facilities and services, including onsite restaurants and bars. Simple guesthouses on primarily residential streets serve as the most popular places to stay for budget-conscious travelers, with a good selection found on the city's side streets. Farther from the city center, look for hotels near the main roads, well positioned for those exploring the region by car.
