Calama

(3.3/5 based on 650+ 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.
