Atacama, Chile travel itineraries and places to stay.

The driest non-polar desert on earth, The Atacama, was first inhabited by the Atacameño people.

The small town of San Pedro de Atacama takes you back in time with its beautiful adobe whitewashed buildings with interior patios. Crystal clear skies and brilliant stars have made the region one of the top destinations for astronomers and stargazers. Exotic wildlife like the camelid vicuñas, guanacos and flamingos roam the altiplano.
