Water Body Nature / Park
Step into the calm of Quebrada de Jerez, a picturesque oasis of lush vegetation nestled within a deep furrow in the delta plain. Cool down from the trek here with a wade in the refreshing stream, and pluck a snack from the bountiful quince and fig trees in the area. (Pears and plums also grow here, but rules strictly forbid eating these.) Those looking for the area's famed petroglyphs should be prepared for an extended and challenging hike, so take plenty of water. With our custom trip planner, San Pedro de Atacama attractions like Quebrada de Jerez can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

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.
