San Pedro de Atacama

  • El Tatio geysers

    San Pedro de Atacama Things to Do

    After visiting the geysers there is nothing better to do than a re-invogorating soak in the thermal pools which are delightfully warm. So don't forget your bathing suit and a towel.

  • The light

    Toconao Favorites

    Yes, the light.It is harsh and aggressive in the late morning and early afternoon hours, but after the Sun begins to fall to the west, it turns into a delicate, crisp-clear Andean light, pure and warmly shaded. The whitewashed walls of some houses -like the one in the photograph, on the N side of the church- get that sunset colors and one could...

    Dating from around 1750, the chime tower is in the main square ("plaza"), and although it belongs to the San Lucas church, it is not next to it, but in front of it across the narrow cobblestoned street.Two interesting features make it special: it was built using the same volcanic stone bricks, which were put together using mud, and its door, made...

    Chuquicamata Restaurants

    Once upon a time 'Chuqui' was a real town, but now its drowning into mine rejects and nobody lives there anymore. The only restaurants you'll find there are the ones miners use. If you are not a miner, believe me, you'll not want to eat there. Bring your own food or cookies or whatever you like before getting there. I would even think about getting...
