Many would argue that the Awasi is the best property in and around San Pedro de Atacama…and for good reason. This small and very private property is made entirely in the local adobe fashion and so merges with its surroundings perfectly.
The Lake District
While not quite as wild as Chilean Patagonia to the south, the Sur Chico and Chile’s lake district is a region of the country that never fails to surprise and inspire those that venture here. In contrast to the other regions of Chile, Sur Chico is an area of snow capped volcanoes, pale green lakes and endless miles of virgin and ancient forest. Mixed in with this wondrous natural beauty are plenty of interesting and quirky places to lay your head or simply take it all in. For those looking for an adventure then this is the place.
Along with the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, there is no doubt that the Atacama Desert is one of the huge draws for anyone considering a trip to Chile. This vast and arid region, stretching 600 miles south from the Peruvian border, is known as one of the driest places on the planet and, it has been reported, there are regions in the Atacama that have not seen a drop of water in over 300 years! With stunning scenery, and plenty of walking to be done, this is somewhere that needs to be seen to be believed.
