What to do and see in Iquique, Tarapaca Region: The Best Nature & Parks

October 27, 2021 Enedina Augsburger

Iquique (Spanish pronunciation: [iˈkike]) is a port city and commune in northern Chile, capital of both the Iquique Province and Tarapacá Region. It lies on the Pacific coast, west of the Pampa del Tamarugal which is part of Atacama Desert. It had a population of 180,601 according to the 2012 census. It is also the main commune of the Greater Iquique. The city developed during the heyday of the saltpetre mining in Atacama Desert in the 19th century. Originally a Peruvian city with a large Chilean population, it was ceded to Chile as result of War of the Pacific (1879–1883). Today it is one of only two free ports of Chile.

Playa Cavancha

Reviewed By 256cristi_nm - Chile, null

Cavancha beach is the second one in the center of Iquique. It is highly recommended for young children and teenagers, and for adult and older people as well. The beach has different option to rent, such as umbrellas, beach and lounge chair, and so on. You also can buy a soda or a snack. Watch out with the sellers, because there are a lot of them. The only thing that I bought them is sods, because I wasn’t sure about the quality of cooked food. The best hours to get there is between 10 to 14 and 18 to 20h. Enjoy!
