  • The explanation is very good but the Organization of the input was very bad, everyone shouting without knowing what to do.

  • Beautiful place, where you can see the stars when the sky is cloudy, and receive great knowledge about celestial bodies.

  • The Observatory is in the beginning of the road from Villavieja to Tatacoa. Every day there are talks of 45 min 7-9 pm. The entrance costs 10mil pesos and there are 100 places for each session. Although seem many people, when is performed the talk not is any discomfort, since all can see the sky starry from his since. The talk is good for people of all ages and with nothing or little knowledge of astronomy. To observe through telescopes must wait their turn, because they are 100 people and is perhaps the only discomfort. Recommended if you are going to the Tatacoa.

  • The desert views over there are beautiful! There are two different deserts, a red one and a Grey one. Be sure to visit both! The formations of the decomposing sandstone are impressive. I recommend to start to hike early or after 4pm because it gets very hot early
  • Serene desert great for exploring, stargazing, and simply enjoying it's beauty. Photographers will love it here.
  • Feels like out of the world. The maze provides a nice walk. Should be very nice for nocturnal views too.
  • Not much known. But here is a real desert, and friendly (& cheap) guides will guide you through
  • It is a very nice and interesting place for astronomy work. However, try to stay in a place that is not the astronomical Center, is a place where he cares only that you pay for using a terrain that is public, the bathrooms are very dirty, the place for bathing very unhealthy, and a great congestion of people which makes it uncomfortable, it is better to walk two minutes and there are several places more where leave you camp with bathroom , shower and with roof in case it rains not flooding tents
