    Great place to explore and visit by bicycle. Recommendation, bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a snack. Importantly, where to rent bike explaining them well the journey such as reach, and where to go. I lost a lot of time trying to find the entrance to the Church... I spoke with one of the keepers and he told me they were going to put posters in the near future... Take into account that they're taking input, are 2000 Chileans and not serves the entrance of Pukara, clarify it because where they rented the bike they say that they only have to buy in 1 place but is a lie and know you, not be because you keep saying it. In the throat of the devil himself, there are places where it is worth get off the bike and walk, there is a viewpoint on one hand, that there is to climb a hill, very good.

    The place is amazing, beautiful, not very complicated for the bike. Unfortunately for all the Atacameño community began to collect access entry, there are almost no places in which does not charge, do not have any services: flyer, map, or bathrooms, or information you... just charge for passing along a rural road that does not It has the best State, even charge to see the square arms of Quitor a small village of San Pedro de Atacama, embarrassing encounter charged for visiting a main square, unfortunately the atacameños already have the sign between the eyes. The place is great for cycling or walking can not miss it, but if you can try to pass the barrier and not pay, is a chutzpah!

    As part of our stay in the hotel Alto Atacama, we take cycling expedition to the Gorge of the devil, which is accessed from the road to Catarpe. It is an expedition that if done by bike is the best that there is in terms of expeditions that combine bikes with spectacular locations. The Gorge itself is wonderful, but if cycling also is entertaining. The complexity is average at the beginning and then it is more complex because of the difficulty. You must go with a guide. Catarpe road is in itself interesting. I recommend making this expedition in the afternoon.

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.
