  • Must see coming back from El Tatio, a quaint village with a beautiful little church and the possibility of bringing animals such as llamas. All buses falling by Geyser stop there, then you will find a little crowd. For those who are hungry you can taste a good fried empanadas or a skewer of llamas!

  • We were victims of a 500 m from Machuca puncture! What luck! Have asked for help to an adorable resident by the name of Yvan! He changed the wheel in 15 minutes gently! Thanks Yvan! Super nice! And then the MIC village is really to do with its small church! In short...

  • If you go on tour so the bus will drop you necessarily to Machuca for a little break. Bread with cheese, skewer of lama... But above all, a small church of great to see at the top of the village!

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.
