Calama

(3.3/5 based on 600+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, shopping, casinos
A hub of northern Chile's copper mining industry, Calama acts as a gateway for exploration of the geological and archaeological sites in the Atacama desert region. One of the driest cities in the world, Calama boasts a gritty charm and features few purpose-built attractions designed to appeal to visitors. In a real desert town, Calama vacations allow visitors to observe how a functioning mining town off that well-beaten tourist path functions on a daily basis. Our Chile trip itinerary maker combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay

Choose from relaxed, simple hotels in the town center, often located right next to the odd luxury option complete with a private pool, onsite restaurant, and bar. Backpacker-friendly hostels provide comfortable lodgings to throw down your bag, refill your water bottle, and head out to explore the city. The edge of town offers a scattering of hotels, allowing you to get the sense of the expansive desert that surrounds Calama.
