Copiapo

Trip Planner South America  /  Chile  /  Atacama Region  /  Copiapo
(3.8/5 based on 650+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, nature, sightseeing
Surrounded by the Atacama Desert, Copiapo receives very little rainfall and owes its existence to the mining industry. A tour of Copiapo reveals a settlement living more like a mining hub than a desert oasis. Still, ecotourism in Copiapo has become the main reason to visit, with natural attractions including volcanoes and the Pacific coast, located just 65 km (40 mi) to the west. When using our Chile vacation builder to make an itinerary online, Copiapo holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay

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.
