I am not going to lie- Chile was not my favorite. I had such high expectations, and was completely let down. We had an apartment in Santiago for the month and did weekend trips to Valparaiso and Vina del Mar. Again, both weekend trips left me very underwhelmed.
I pretty much thought I was going to leave Chile without a good memory. But then our last weekend in the country we went to San Pedro de Atacama. And WOW. It did not disappoint. You truly feel like you're on another planet when you're here- which makes sense since SO many space movies were filmed there for that exact reason.
Come with me to explore the coolest town in Chile in my opinion: the desert oasis of San Pedro de Atacama in the Atacama desert. Here's your day by day itinerary for visiting San Pedro de Atacama in Chile. This desert region in the north of Chile is filled with red rocks, lagoons, volcanoes, salt flats and wildlife. I help you plan your trip with a 3-day itinerary and show you exactly what to expect from the tours you book.
