Map It and Tag It Rumble: Pisco Elqui - Chile

Pisco Elqui is a location in Coquimbo, Chile, near the city of La Serena. It is characterized by its quiet and natural life surrounded by beautiful valleys and the Elqui River.

Many young people go to Pisco Elqui during the summer, as the party in the middle of nature is really amazing. Bonfires, music and friendship form the summer in Elqui. If you can go to Pisco Elqui you’ll have a lot of friends in one minute!

The food is very good. The fruits are unique in this place. You can also enjoy an amazing liquor called “Pisco”. All the most important “Pisco” factories are around. Surely you’ll be a little drunk after the first cup.

The camping areas are preferred by tourists for the low cost and wonderful nature. The Elqui River is special to escape the heat of the city, it has clear waters and stunning colors.

Later on around 1000 A.D. the Diaguita people arrived in the same area. This makes Pisco Elqui a folk full of culture. Also, you can find amazing observatories. The sky in Elqui is amazing to learn about the stars.

I hope you can enjoy it too someday. It´s a really nice and beautiful place at the end of the world.
