La Serena, Chile. Take advantage of the beaches of La Serena during the spring and summer, walk along the long Avenida del Mar or go shopping at Recova, the area’s most famous market and arts & crafts fair. In Coquimbo, you can’t miss La Herradura beach and Barrio Inglés’ nightlife. Enjoy the spectacular ocean view while you taste a seafood mix with a glass of good local white wine and share recipes with the chefs from the area. The cove’s secret of success: the fish and shellfish come directly from the sea to the kitchen. Superb!
