Half a day in Antofagasta, worth it?

by B3av Online Now Feb 26, 2006 at 8:10 AM

Hi people,

On the 5th of April I'm planning on flying from Santiago to Calama and then onto San Pedro.

Is it worth catching an early flight to Antofagasta, maybe go have a picnic at La Portada, and then catch an early evening flight to Calama. Or would I be better off flying direct to Calama?

Thanks in advance,

    I think Antofagasta is worth for max 2 days, there's not much to see. the few attractions are the Colon Sq (downtown sq)and the beach. I moved here for work about a month ago and I think I saw it all in 3 days, yeah I hear San Pedro is really nice and worth it but I haven't been there yet.
    Hope it helps,
