With so many great hotels up in this region of Chile, it is difficult to pick an out and out winner as each offer something different. In our view, however, if you are after views, great food, great service, facilities and value for money then the Tierra Atacama is where we pick! Wonderfully spacious rooms look out to the volcanoes of the Andes. A wide range of activities and guides to choose from, and plenty of wonderful facilities to relax in afterwards…what more can you ask for!?

Located just outside of San Pedro (a short 5 min cycle from the hotel), the Tierra Atacama is a relatively new hotel to the area, but it has already stolen the limelight from a few of the established guard. The concept here is very similar to that of the nearby Explora Hotel, wonderfully luxurious surroundings from which to explore the driest desert on earth. This really is an area of the world where it pays to be outside!

On arrival you will be met by the Tierra Atacama’s team of superb guides who will walk you through the various possibilities while you are here…visiting the Tatio geysers, walking through secret canyons, seeing the valley of the moon or heading to the Flamingo park. Everything is well managed and explained with the utmost room for your personal additions etc.

The rooms, of which there are two types, are well furnished with luxurious brands and inside and outside showers. Each has a private view out to the volcanoes that line the skyline to the east. This view is also apparent from all of the communal areas…the comfortable lounge area, the restaurant and the outstanding spa and pool facilities.

You may have guessed that we quite like the Tierra Atacama! It is probably our pick of the bunch.

Great value, good food, great facilities, good location, superb views

Erm…to be thought about!
