Getting to Uyuni after doing the Salar de Uyuni Tour and spending a few nights in San Pedro

by Rancey1

Hi,

I have been looking around a bit but can't find a definitive answer one way or the other. I have read that it is possible to start in Uyuni to do the 3-4 day tour and finish in San Pedro, but I'm not sure if it's possible to go back to Uyuni after spending a few nights in San Pedro directly or whether I would have to do the tour or find some other way to get back?

I really want to head to La Paz after the tour but I also want to spend a few nights in San Pedro if possible (and worthwhile). The other option I was looking at was possible heading over to Salta after San Pedro and flying from there to Santa Cruz and onto La Paz...To be honest I don't know anything about Salta and don't really know if it's a good place to see or not.

Thanks

Northwest Argentina, the area around Salta is an interesting region for traveling. It has an andean feeling to it and is more developed than Bolivia. It is a good region for slowing the trip before the more difficult traveling ahead in Bolivia. The Salta region is especially nice late in the year when summer begins. When I was there, you could travel by bus directly from San Pedro de Atacama to Salta. San Pedro de Atacama is an excellent place to kick back. There was a nice Christmas dance when I was there some years back. If you have the time, travel overland through the Humahuaca valley from Salta to Tupiza or Tarija, Bolivia then north through Potosi to La Paz. It is an interesting journey.

Buen Viaje,
ElDesierto

Travel Tips for San Pedro de Atacama

ATM, electricity and water availability

by jenellim

I just came back from San Pedro 2 days ago and am pleased to update the VT community that there is now an mobile ATM-in-a-van that connects via satellite. (It is the first time I've ever seen something like this!) However, it only seems to accept Maestro and Cirrus cards, so be sure your cards have those.

Electricity also runs all day now, although water seems to shut off between midnight to morning. I had to brush my teeth with mineral water coming back late one evening and leaving early for the geysers at 4 am. I am not sure if this is a problem with my hostel (Resicidencial La Florida) or in general for San Pedro.

Calles / Streets

by elpariente

San Pedro de Atacama es una ciudad muy llana donde no se ha permitido construir casas de más de uno o dos pisos y las calles están sin asfaltar por lo que conserva su aspecto rural
San Pedro de Atacama is a flat city where it has not been allowed to build houses of more than one or two levels and the streets are without asphalt , so it keeps the rural aspect

Sandboarding

by Glospi

Sandboarding in the dunes of either the Moon Valley or the Death (Mars) Valley has become a quite popular activity amid San Pedro's visitors.
The preferred places are the Great Dune on Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley) or the huge dune on the E area of the Valle de la Muerte (Death Valley), to where the picture illustrating this tip belongs.

It is (still) free, so take advantage while you can... Sandboarding boards, o'course....
And sneakers (sandals or open shoes aren't recommendable, as the sand is very abrasive) or hiking boots, plus drinking water.
Sandboards can be rented in San Pedro for about US$ 8 a day.

Search for an entrance into the "Underworld"

by joernme

Walking in the area into direction Valle de la Luna we found many little peaks to climb, but also deep valleys and black holes going downwards. Indeed, there are many caves. If you take a mag lite or the like you will find it great to discover one or the other cave.

Cemetary Exit towards the Holy Mountain

by joernme

I don?t know if this exit into direction Licancabur ? the holy mountain ? is by coincidence or not. I found it just extremely beautiful, it?s one of my favourite Chile photos, but probably it?s more behind it. I could imagine that this is the exit to the gods of Licancabur for the souls of the cemetery. What do you think?
