Isla Pan de Azucar Shuttles
SCL airport transfers
Enjoy the beauty of Chile’s shoreline city with various off-shore islands that make up Isla Pan de Azúcar, the closest arrival point for cruise ships located a few miles south in the neighboring ambiance of La Serena’s Port of Coquimbo. Smaller boats can tender guests ashore to Isla Pan De Azúcar, while select transfer services offer scenic rides along the coastline vistas of the C-120 Highway. Take advantage of this idyllic stretch either through convenient private transfers like sedans, vans and SUVs, or look toward the airy convenience of meet-and-greet services ranging from convenient taxis to luxury limousines. Scenic lookouts are instantly visible through an intricate network of hiking trails at the small village’s connected access to a larger-than-life national park, many pathways quickly reachable through the help of local tour guides that can be arranged from the Service Nacionial de Turismo in downtown La Serena.
Choose between either the city of La Serena near the cruise port, or the deafening silence reachable with just a few steps beyond Pan de Azúcar’s more rural backdrop. In this backdrop rests the vibrant forested ambiance of National Park of Pan de Azúcar, a vast Chilean park system with ethereal coastlines, high peak lookouts, and dirt roads winding through a couple dozen miles of eccentric roadside. Consider what’s close to La Serena for more modern attractions, popular hangouts found in the multi-faceted lawns of Corazon Park, including the various oriental-themed landscapes that make up the Japanese Garden, as well as the historic ambiance of the Santo Domingo Church and its Gothic-themed dome. Close to Corazon Park are the shops of Patio Colonial, home to various local vendors as well as an outdoor courtyard lined with festively potted plants. A wide variety of indigenous artworks can also be discovered at the Archeological Museum of La Serena, home to various local artifacts from centuries past.
