Set in 20 acres of land and with the largest Spa in all of San Pedro de Atacama, the Cumbres is an impressive hotel that still feels intimate thanks to its thoughtful, single-storey design - inspired by the indigenous population of the Atacama region. Combined with 21st century technology, Cumbres have devised a unique environment for the Atacama Desert experience.
Hotel Altiplanico, San Pedro is designed for your stay to be an immersive experience of the Atacama region. With the adobe buildings, grass & bamboo fields, local cuisine and quiet location, it succeeds. However, some might find the limited facilities and basic rooms a little too true to the sparseness of the desert.
An excellent alternative in the San Pedro area for those who don’t have the budget for the 5-star big hitters such as Tierra, Alto, Cumbres et al. Casa Atacama knows it cannot match their grandeur, so instead focuses – successfully – on providing comfortable, private accommodation in a relaxing and peaceful environment.

Michelle and Sue needed last minute help in booking their trip to Chile as their original tour operator tried to up the price for them at the last minute. Fortunately we were able to step in and help them. Please see their review below and they have graciously agreed to share a few of their photos as below.
