Arica, entrance gate to the country can be characterized as a desert zone with some oases appearing in the middle of the plain. This city is widely known because of the “Morro de Arica”, heroic act from a daring battle taking place in The War of the Pacific in the 20th century. Arica’s average temperature in the coastal area invites people to enjoy the beaches all year round.

Arica “The City of Eternal Spring” is a zone where various Pre-Columbian towns that left their mark converged; besides, it is also rich in native flora and fauna. On the other hand, Iquique is widely known for the Zona Franca (Duty Free Zone), a 200 hectare business center where steady wholesale commercial and industrial activities are carried out.
