Packed with old stone churches in a unique urban landscape, La Serena represents one of Chile's oldest settlements, equally popular with architecture buffs and beachgoers.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Granja Mundo Caballo as well as Enchanted Valley (Valle del Encanto). Step off the beaten path and head to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Reserva Nacional Pinguino de Humboldt. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Playas Socos and Avenida del Mar. Explore La Serena's surroundings by going to Cavas Del Valle (in Monte Grande) and Playa Guanaqueros (in Guanaqueros). And it doesn't end there: take an unorthodox tour of Valle del Elqui, tour the pleasant surroundings at Totoralillo, make a trip to Plaza de Armas, and pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de Guayacan.

In April, daytime highs in La Serena are 21°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
