Getting to and away from Valle de Azapa

Rutas A-27 and A-33 are the main accesses to the Azapa valley. Side roads connect them, at Cerro Sombrero and near the museum. A half-kilometer (0.3 mi) past San Miguel village is another road that goes to Poconchile in the Valle de Lluta.


Colectivo taxis leave from the corner of Chacabuco and Lynch in Arica (daily 6 a.m.-11 p.m., $1.90, 20 minutes). These collective cabs usually take A-27 direct to the museum, meaning you will miss out on seeing the geoglyphs. If you are into doing a bit of walking, catch a cherry-red buseta with a sign reading “Cerro Sombrero” from Avenida 18 de Septiembre in Arica ($0.60). Be sure to tell the driver you want to go to the geoglifos. From where the bus route ends is a six-kilometer (3.6 mi) walk to the museum.
