Very nice area. Very clean. Nice walking street with lot and lots of shops and restaurants. It is the main street.
I liked this street much more than the mall as you can stroll a pedestrian way, look at the shops, stop for food or drink, maybe outdoors. Very lively.
The prettiest street in town, 21 de Mayo is the promenade preferred by Ariqueños to have a walk anytime during the day, to have a nice espresso, meal and meet with friends at lunch and after hours. This is the social centre of the city and you'll be surprised by small carnivals…
Great place to stroll around, especially in the afternoon, and heaps of shops, restaurants, people selling seemingly everything, live music, and some bars down one of the side streets.
Spent some time strolling along Paseo 21 de Mayo. It’s wall to wall shops and stalls selling everything imaginable. There was a really good musical puppet show on when we visited. I guess you can’t visit Arica without visiting here.
