About Iquique, Chile

Iquique is one of Chile's liveliest cities, largely due to its establishment as a free-trade zone. Iquique is on a rocky peninsula, part of the Atacama Desert. Iquique was once Chile's main port, thanks to the booming nitrate trade of the turn of the last century. Tourists today are attracted by sport fishing and gorgeous beaches.

We went on the Basic City Tour Excursion in Iquique in the Atacama Desert. Oceania put 25 elderly passengers coming from winter in North America on an UNAIRCONDITIONED bus with temps in the high 80s. By the time we got to town, I was soaked with sweat. I told the tour guide he needed to get the bus fixed. We did a walk around and a tour of a museum and palace. When we met up with the bus, it was not fixed. I bailed on the excursion and walked back to take the shuttle back to the ship. I complained at the excursion desk. After a non-committal initial response, Oceania sent a second written reply giving us a 25% refund. HOW GENEROUS, he said facetiously.

Very interesting and had good views of the city too. "Lunch" did leave something to be desired. Also - the trek down to where the tables were set up was VERY difficult for anywone with mobility issues.
