Aeropuerto Iquique, Chile

See the Sights in Your Chile Airport Car Rental

So you’ve planned your trip to Chile, but don’t know where to start? Chile offers a variety of fun activities and an abundance of spots to soak in the rich culture and heritage of this striking country. After leaving the Thrifty Chile airport car rental location, you can be on your way to see the sights of Chile.

Get a Glimpse of Sunken History

See the beautiful sights along the coast as you travel to Museo Corbeta Esmeralda in your Chile airport car rental. Here you can take a tour of a replica of the sunken Esmeralda, a ship that challenged Peruvian warships during the War of the Pacific. The guided tour allows you to see inside the staff quarters and on the ship’s deck, and tours are offered in both Spanish and English, if you call ahead.

Dip Your Toes into the Waters of the Pacific

South America is home to many breathtaking beaches, and Chile is no exception. Whether you want to enjoy a romantic evening with a special someone, or you’re looking for a fun location to enjoy beach activities with the family, Playa Cavancha is a popular beach spot for tourists and locals alike. Enjoy the refreshing sands and the cool, clear water just 30 minutes away from the airport.

Explore Plaza Arturo Prat

Though a bit of a drive from the airport, Plaza Prat is well worth a day trip. Take a stroll through the square and see the historic buildings that give visitors a taste of the culture and history in Iquique. While you’re there, be sure to check out the Clock Tower, built by the Workers Welfare Society of Tarapacá, and the old railway carriages that allow viewers a glimpse into Chilean history.
