San Pedro de Atacama

— 7 nights
Major archeological sites and a renowned museum remain the big draws in San Pedro de Atacama tourism, appealing to visitors interested in learning more about South America's pre-Columbian cultures.
Step out of the city life by going to Geyser del Tatio and Laguna Chaxa. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Atacama Desert and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Step out of San Pedro de Atacama with an excursion to Mall Plaza Calama in Calama--about 1h 25 min away. Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic natural features at Valle De La Luna, get outside with Outdoor Activities, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Valle Arcoiris.

Bodies of Water · Geologic Formations · Hot Springs
The II Antofagasta Region is one of Chile's fifteen first-order administrative divisions. It comprises three provinces, Antofagasta, El Loa and Tocopilla. It is bordered to the north by Tarapacá and by Atacama to the south and is the second-largest region of Chile. To the east it borders Bolivia and Argentina. The capital of the region is the port city of Antofagasta, another important city being Calama. The main economic activity is copper mining in the giant porphyry copper systems located inland.Climate is extremely arid albeit somewhat milder near the coast. Nearly all of the region is devoid of vegetation except close to the Loa River or at oases such as San Pedro de Atacama. Much of the inland is covered by salt flats, tephra and lava flows. The coast exhibits prominent cliffs.The region was sparsely populated by indigenous Changos and Atacameños until massive Chilean immigration in conjunction with a saltpeter boom in the later 19th century. The region used to be Bolivian until the War of the Pacific broke out in 1879.
