In the air, Iquique unveils as an oasis between the arid Cerro Dragón (an enormous dune) and the Pacific Ocean. It’s just one of its several contrasts, like the vibrating nightlife, which shares space with the architecture from the saltpeter era; or the bustling Zona Franca, as opposed to the quiet neighboring ghost town of Humberstone. Highlights also include the Corbeta Esmeralda, a nautical museum installed in a replica of an old sunken ship, and the huge sea lions scattered across Caleta Riquelme.
