  • Whereas if you want to be sure to go whereas the ticket is free you have to book at least 2 months before on their site, but if you enter the waiting list try to go to the bus, whether it is in low season almost always goes up! Unfortunately you won't see the antennas in action, those are on the plateau at 5000 metres above sea level but when will explain the operation and research you'll be ecstatic. Very good and very responsible for the relations of communication!

Where to stay in San Pedro de Atacama

As the stepping-stone to the nearby national reserve, San Pedro de Atacama offers an impressive range of hotels and guesthouses. Despite the big selection, prices remain relatively high throughout the year due to the town's status as northern Chile's tourist hub. At the peak of the summer season (late December to late March), some budget-friendly hostels even require single travelers to share a room with another guest. If you wish to avoid that, look into one of the hotels, many of which cluster around the town's central area and line the main street.
