This rock formation is more than great! It is 42 meters tall and 70 wide; so it is huge.... but you get to see it from far; still it is worth it! You should definitely visit the museum next to it so they explain you...More

Nothing to see, just a view of the big rock with a hole in the middle, you can't go down to the beach, the stairs are blocked. You can get there by taxi, 15 min from downtown, it will cost you something around 15-20 bucks.

The view from the top of the cliff is overwhelming. This lookout shows you how the coast on this area feels like. Others said it, too: this is an excellent option for lunch from the airport if you have to wait for your flight.

It´s a must to take a picture with the Portada beside you, after you can eat some sea food plates at the restorant, Try the mix ceviche and local Pisco Sour.

This amazing view is good for 30 min or so, because you can walk around a bit. You couldn'r descend to the beach while we were there, but there were footprints, so there must be a way down somewhere. The guy painting the rails at...More

If you go to Antofagasta - or even have a short stop-over at airport - its worth of visiting La Portada and to take a photo! Pacific Ocean and La Portada - always in my mind. One day a tsunami will break it down; and...More
