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.

The trip to Punta Choros and to the Humbold Penguin National Park is a must: you will see sea otters, penguins, dolphins, whales and many other beautiful species.

We enjoyed this trip.. It was filled with different things to do and had something for everyone. The beach is a bit different from others we visited.

If you love animals this is your day tour! It begins with a 90 minute car ride from La Serena. The ride is a little winding and bumpy throughout the Quebrada de Choros, though you can sight foxes, donkeys, guanacos, and horses. Once in Punta...More
