A few thoughts........
Arica served mostly as a transit city for our trips to Putre and Bolivia. I would not recommend it as a tourist destination though. We had a lovely Christmas dinner at Maracuja restaurant over looking the ocean. The Azapa valley, a fertile and narrow oasis, with its rich olive groves forms a dramatic contrast with the surrounding desert.

Days 75 - 77: From Peru to Chile's Arica

... tips and recommendations with them. As it turned out, Arica happened to be the perfect place for a vacation. It wasn't much more than a couple beautiful beaches with warm ocean waters and hot sun. We spent most of our first day relaxing on the beach before we went for a walk up the main drag and then to the lookout of El Morro. This hill that runs alongside the town was a military post during the war of the Pacific that had been converted into ...

Arica 12th-14th Nov - Priya

... protection from the savagery our oceans sometimes present us with! Whatever the purpose, the size of this statue was impressive, although I am sure we would have been less impressed had we seen Rio de Janeiro’s messianic figure first.

Surfing with #bullshityoyo

... mention that apparently learning on big boards is easier and so David was already at a huge disadvantage, unable to sit on his board without it being totally submerged and his falling off. My first wave was pretty successful as it wasn't big, I was pushed by Yoyo and managed to stand up even. However the next one frightened the life out of me as I nose dived back into an enormous wave from the top, then got scared by ...

Chile - A brief visit

A travel blog entry by candcthai


... best fish we have had since a sashimi breakfast in Tokyo's Tsujuki fish market a few years back. Over the next couple of days we check out the various sights in Arica, or at least those that are open. One we enjoyed was a walk up to El Morro de Arica a hill right next to the dock area which, after a steep climb, affords great views of the city, beaches and surrounding desert. Only a brief vist to Chile and it is time to head for the border once again. We walk to the ...

As good as it gets in Arica

This hotel is a bit expensive for what you get but as good as it gets in Arica. The location is pretty good, located right by the ocean with views of the Morro in the distance. Breakfast is quite poor. Staff are helpful and professional.
