Greater La Serena is a Chilean conurbation that includes the La Serena and Coquimbo communes in the Coquimbo Region. It has a population of 412,845 inhabitants according to the 2012 census becoming the fourth biggest metropolitan areas in Chile after Santiago, Greater Valparaiso and Greater Concepcion. It has had a population growth that reaches 100% for the last 20 year, mainly because of the economic growth and the development of the tourism in its central city, La Serena. It has, as many Chileans conurbations, an industrial and portuary sector, and a residential and vacationary sector in which the beaches are the main attraction.
