I almost feel like we had a one-of-a-kind experience in Coquimbo. We took Princess' Tololo Observatory tour, an absolute highlight of our cruise. Apparently, not many groups get to visit and actually see the 4 meter telescope, located on an 8,000+ foot high, desert mountaintop. I believe it's the largest in the southern hemisphere and is conducting research on the origins of our galaxy, among other things. Remember if you're lucky enough to visit, that you get to see the telescope, not see *through* the telescope. And remember the altitude. One member of our little group needed help with altitude sickness.

Very big and commercial port. Took excursion to Coquimbo to see some history of the city. Nice "Light House" on the beach, and very big "CROSS", on top of the mountain, can be seen from everywhere.

We did the Oceania Elqui Valley excursion. This was a long drive and not much to see. After 1.5 hour drive we got a very small taste of Pisco at a Pisco factory and stopped at a small square both which were nothing special.

Went on a Princess , very good day with lots of variety and things to see, drink and eat. Got to sample a lot of local alcohol as included . Huge lunch included, which Mum shared with some of the local friendly canines

Loved Chile -- there is a large shopping mall, farmers market and supermarket on a 10-15 minute walk from the port gate. Was safe and offered an interesting view of local culture. Also the fish market (multiple stalls) next to the port was fascinating.
