    The Atacama desert is known as the most arid area in the world. Kilometers and kilometers without anything, just sand and mountains without vegetation. There is no life, or of animals or insects, but everything changes magically in the spring, provided that there has been at least one couple of rainy days in the winter. The desert explodes, flowers, is filled with life, animals insects. principally, tourists. It is a wonderful show that cannot be described or with thousand words, you have to come to see it. This year 2017, by heavy rains we had in the third region, the magic already began. There are many places between Copiapó and Huasco fully flowered... we imagine as will be this in September and October. Is something unique, not to be missed-

    the distance from the noise allows you to listen to the silence, until your palpitations... a magical place, the dunes more large chile and if you are a sportsman you can practice sandboarding. bring sunscreen and water

Where to stay in Copiapo

The most popular places to stay are just north of Copayapu/Route 5, with the rest of the town primarily residential. The town's pretty boutique hotels offer private pools and gardens, while simple, family-run guesthouses provide fewer frills but charge considerably less. If you're planning to use the town as a base for desert explorations, consider staying in a rented apartment.
