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.
Step out of San Pedro de Atacama to go to Antofagasta and see Salar de Atacama, which is approximately 1h 35 min away. And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic natural features at Valle De La Luna, look and learn at Observatorio Etno-Astronomico Licanantay, make a trip to Mirador de Kari, Piedra del Coyote, and examine the collection at Museo del Meteorito.
