San Pedro de Atacama

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.
Get some cultural insight at Pukara de Quitor and Museo del Meteorito. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Laguna Chaxa and Off-Road Tours. Spend the 12th (Sat) exploring nature at Reserva Nacional de Flamencos. The adventure continues: explore the activities along Lagunas Baltinache, identify plant and animal life at Valle Arcoiris, and make a trip to Mirador de Kari, Piedra del Coyote.

Squeezed between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, geographically diverse Chile is a long, thin stretch of land encompassing some of the world's driest deserts in the north, and some of its largest glacial fields in the south. Though most Chile holidays include some form of adventure in the vast wilderness areas, the country also contains charming cities providing plenty of urban things to do and see. Many tours of Chile include at least a brief visit to the country's lush wine regions, where backyard vineyards compete with sprawling estates producing some of the world's most respected whites and reds.
