Los Vilos is located in the Province of Choapa in the Coquimbo Region, standing out for its Punta Chungo port which ships copper loads from the Los Pelambres mining company and is located in the Bay of Conchalí.
In its beginnings it was developed as a cove of fishermen, it is a city with a rich archaeological history, with vestiges of those who were the first inhabitants of the American continent and it has an important part of the golden age of rail transport in the country with historical monuments. Its beaches are an unmissable destination for vacationers and nearby it is possible to visit striking towns such as Quilimarí and Caimanes that are an architectural piece of the colonial style.
The city has various cultural attractions such as the public library and the municipal aquarium, a space created to raise awareness in the community regarding the importance of caring for marine species.

There are two coves, the main one is the San Pedro cove, the oldest in the city that began to be built in 1952, where you can buy fresh and natural sea products and in addition to enjoying delicious meals in the restaurants located in the sector. In this place, every June 29, the celebrations of the Feast of Saint Peter are held, who is considered the patron saint of fishermen and men of the sea, making this tradition an important attraction for tourists. On the other hand, Las Conchas cove offers dishes with seafood in the restaurant of the place that bears the same name. From here you can access by boat to Isla de Lobos and Isla de Huevo.
