The deep south

Tacna Center

Tacna is not a touristy city but it does have a fantastic market, historic Plaza de Armas and beautiful cathedral. There are also some nearby geysers that are a popular tourist destination.

Miculla Petroglyphs

Tacna also has some important petroglyphs nearby: the Miculla Petroglyphs. They’re a half hour drive northeast of the city. You can take public transportation or go with a guided tour, both are readily available in Tacna. Across from the petroglyphs is an Inca rope bridge similar to the Q´ueswachaca bridge near Cusco.


Tacna has its own airport, with several flights daily from Lima. It’s only an hour north of Arica, Chile. If you’re headed south to Chile, this is your last stop in Peru.
