I took a day trip from La Serena with EcoTurismo. Unfortunately did not see as much wildlife as hoped, but that’s the luck of nature. The guide was great and I enjoyed the boat ride.

Punta Choros is a turistic place, which serves as starting point for the excursion to the national resevre Isla Damas (where the Pinguins Humboldt live). There are several good restaurants and hotels, which are not very cheap.
