20 Arica, Chile Port Reviews

Enjoyed this port more than I expected. Surrounded by desert, this little town is a nice oasis. Walked down the beach then hired a taxi for $20 to take us to the top of the hill. Great views.

Very interesting! We took an open air bus along the coast to visit the caves, then up on the hill for a great overlook. The town is friendly with lots of shops and restaurants. The woman in the tourist information office was especially helpful.
