What a cute little city!! I took advantage of this small city and walked everywhere instead of paying for taxis. Everything was so close together, and it felt safe.
I began my walk through the market, around the streets, and up the hill (with a group of friends of course!). Morro de Arica is a steep hill located in the city of Arica. Its height is 139 meters above sea level. It was the last bulwark of defense for the Peruvian troops who garrisoned the city during the War of the Pacific. Climbing up this hill was very interesting part of this port stop. We didn’t realize how HIGH we really were! Amazing views of the whole city were seen from the top! We found a small museum, a piano (YES, A PIANO), the Christ statue, and a HUGE Chilean flag!
We had two hours left before we had to board the ship again, so we went into the city and on the Main Street. We found stores, souvenirs, and cafes.
