Thispaper focuses on the analysis of the demographic flows from Bolivia to the city of Antofagasta during the apogee of the nitrate cycle between 1880 and 1930. So, the personal records of the Bolivian contingent establishing in the capital city of Antofagasta province are studied, based on historical files of the Civil Registration Office. The Bolivian situation is studied in order to appreciate the factors that made migration possible from various geographic areas, along with the conditions of Antofagasta city during thatperiod. The analysis of documents allows differentiating the contributions of each Bolivian department, gender, age, social capital, and the periods in which these flows occurred, together with determining that Bolivians establishing in Antofagasta were mainly Spanish or European descendants.
