When my husband chose to visit the Salar de Atacama, I had my concerns. Yet, after traveling close to 2 hours from San Pedro de Atacama, I was very impressed with the natural beauty, interesting landscape, and the flamingos in front of us. It was late in the afternoon and the sky was signaling a potential rain storm with gray skies. It was awesome! If you go, do take rubber-sole shoes and rain gear, just in case.

It was beautiful, amazing, but it's so far away from civilization that I couldn't tell if the trip worth it or no.

Nice view of the vulcanoes. The salar seems to come from anpther planet. Nicest point is to see the flamingos on their fly. If you enjoy taking pictues- what an opportunity

We, the Hollands couple took a trip to the atacama desert just two years ago. I loved it, very dry area, not even a cactus but, beatiful colors and so peaceful that you can "hear" the silence, I was also amazed at the inmensity of the land, the huge volcanos and fresh pure air, and let's not forget the envigorating river water after a long day touring at high altitudes.
