La Portada is a natural, white sedimentary rock formation that has been eroded into its characteristic arch shape by the Pacific. Only 30 minutes from Antofagasta, our hotel's guests find this a breathtaking example of nature's beauty and power at work.
Wind-tossed surf and breezy boardwalks are easy to find near this hotel, but top Antofagasta beaches like La Chimba, popular among the locals, are located a bit farther north. The sandy expanse is a quiet haven for sunbathers and area fishermen alike.
Don't Go Home Without
A rich history dating back to the 19th century is on display and easily accessible from the hotel. Antofagasta has preserved a number of buildings relevant to the city's historic mining tradition in the Barrio Historico, located next to the modern port.
