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. In the middle of a high, arid plateau, the town also makes an ideal base for exploring the surrounding landscape, which includes geysers, volcanoes, lagoons, salt flats, hot springs, and ruins of structures built by the indigenous population many centuries ago. Most San Pedro de Atacama itineraries include visits to a nearby nature reserve, best known for sheltering all three flamingo species inhabiting Chile. The town itself remains a small urban center of dusty streets lined by an ever-growing number of tour agencies, cafes, and guesthouses. Plan your vacation with our Chile online vacation planner and discover the best things to do in San Pedro de Atacama.
