In the national park you can visit several beautiful and interesting places, for example "El Mirador","Las Lomitas" and "Playa Blanca".

Desert Fox Atacama, Chile

Las Lomitas is located in the north of the park and is 800 meters high. In a few areas of the Atacama Region coast the coastal border is so pronounced. In addition "Las Lomitas" stands out for its flora, camanchaca and interesting morphology due to the weathering of an intrusive rock in a humid environment of heat. There is a refuge and you can observe the operation of the well-known "fog trap". In addition, a trail with descriptions of the most important plants in the area was also prepared.
