Penguins, sea otters, cranes, boating tours, friendly locals. As yet undiscovered by tourists, with beautiful uncrowded beaches.

“Wild Wildlife”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Take the boat at Punta Choros to see all the magnificent wildlife at Isla Choros and Isla Damas. Around Isla Choros admire penguins, cormorants, sea lions, while schools of bottlenose dolphins play around the boat. It's only possible to land at Isla Damas, and pay atention there to little passerine birds and all cactus vegetation, absolutely gorgeous. And please, do not throw garbage, help protect this still pristine environment.

“Must see ig you stay at La Serena”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

This location is about one and half hours drive from La Serena. 3 hours boat trip from the Punta was visiting Islas Gaviota, Choros, and Damas. There are lots of seals, Humboldt penguins, and birds. The rocks and cliffs at Isla Choros are very interesting too. Walk on Isla Damas was also pleasant.
