"City in the desert" Tacna by Cyreni

Tacna Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 28 photos

When I first arrived in Tacna I was fascinated by the various texts and figures that you can see written on the otherwise naked desert hills. These large-sized creations consist of a dry plant.

Tacna is a rather tranquil city near the chilean border with lots of commercial activity. There are quite many tourists from Chile and Bolivia and accomodation is readily available. There are some beaches not that far from the city and one can make trips to other locations in the Tacna province.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Interesting location
  • Cons:Not much to see or to do in the city itself
