Overall Resort Rating:
The capital of Chile’s northernmost region, Region I, comprising the provinces of Arica, Parinacota and Iquique, the city of Iquique is one of the country’s most visited cities. The attractions are a mild climate, commerce, the Atacama desert, natural and archaeological treasures, access to Peru and Bolivia and a great many recreational and sporting activities. Iquique has re-invented itself as a commercial center and a tourist base for explorations into the desert, sports and recreation, deep sea fishing, beaches and archaeological tours. The hot springs and thermal baths attract visitors for the mud baths and healing properties to these oases.The great Andes and the national parks bring climbers, trekkers and photographers. The inland orchards and farms provide produce to complement the seafood found offshore.
In the city, the small historic center is surrounded by modern growth, including new housing sectors, development of the beaches and hotels.
