  • crossing from Arica by bus ($2000), arrive at Tacna and change money there mismo.luego take a taxi for 5 soles and leaves you on the market July 28. Remember that beyond it there is two hours less with regard to Chile, get like 9 am. they were opening some local. the truth is eztaa cheap, I recommend you go with fed up silver because they start to buy and do not stop jajajaj, there are enough imitations that at first glance seem real!. the drink and cigars are also cheap (beware the amounts if they return to Chile), is to stay a couple of hours, regateen sick can get good prices. for lunch they have many possibilities, the dishes are cheap and strong. eye with the heat! the sun beats strong. and also mindful of the chaos that is on the streets. hopefully arrive early because the day flies

  • Tipical Peruvian food store and restaurants. Prices are a little high but is convenient for location.
  • Typical peruvian market. You can find food, fruits, meat and so on.
  • A traditional place, recently refurbished, with many different things, starting for small convenience stores, with local products, milk, chocolates and any sort of thing for cooking or cleaning. LOL. In the second floor you cand find a nice display of natural juice makers, who tempt you with fresh fruit slices for free like mangoes and melons. It is very cheap and juices are awesome because of the quality of the organic local fruits, tasty and aromatic. And for less than a dollar you can drink the WHOLE BLENDER. Yes, the whole blender. There's a hidden sublevel where you can buy alcohol and cigarrettes from all around the world for very good prices (JW black for $40 bottle) and also there's nice cheap place to get a manicure or pedicure with nail design for less than $3 dollars. In the surroundings you can find pirate buses to Arica, most of them, chilean. Good option to avoid crowded buses at the international station.

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.
