We stayed in Arica for 1 night on the way to San Pedro de Atacama and found this guesthouse to be very welcoming and relaxing. We booked the double room with ensuite, the room was fine and good value. There was a great area in the back with a tabletennis table, couches, tv. We had a very late bus out... More

The local... More

We arrived in Arica on a motorbike trip around S America from Bolivia in need of somewhere to stay but also with some harder problems to solve. By sheer chance we met the amazing owner of Surf Lounge (on the street) who helped us find foreign motorbike insurance (no easy task) plus a local metalworking facility to repair our bent... More

The owner is fluent... More
