A splendid resort city surrounded by natural wonder

On the edge of two distinct and diverse worlds, the seaside city of Coquimbo and nearby La Serena lie sandwiched between Chile’s fertile central valley and the arid Atacama Desert—and they’re everything you could wish for from a day in port. Whether you’re an avid history buff, a voracious foodie, or an active outdoor adventurer, you can do it all (or just a little, you are on vacation) with Azamara Club Cruises®.

In Coquimbo, local lore is all about pirate legends. Swashbuckling seafarers like Henry Drake plundered the coast in search of gold and riches, some of which are still rumored to be buried close by. For treasures you can take home yourself, head to Calle Aldunate to shop for fine ceramics emblazoned with patterns of pre-Columbian Diaguita culture. Fresh seafood is on almost every menu around here. Terminal Requero (the local fish market) is the best place to get your fill of the catch of the day and meet warm and welcoming locals.

A short drive from port is the country’s second-oldest city, La Serena. This colonial city is a popular summer holiday destination for Chileans, and it’s easy to see why with a tour along Avienda del Mar. Not one, not two, but twelve golden beaches stretch along the city’s coast, perfect for sport fishing or simply soaking up the sun. Set out from Plaza de Armas and explore engaging museums and lively markets, or venture a little further outside of the city to the Elqui Valley, where rugged mountain ranges form a breathtaking backdrop for rolling vineyards.
