Tagged: Atacama

I added the Atacama desert to my Chile itinerary because I happened to see ‘San Pedro de Atacama’ on the map while researching a second place to visit in Chile. Upon confirmation that this is the same Atacama as ‘Atacama desert’, I became curious. I knew from school this was the driest place on earth. 

It didn’t look too far from the capital Santiago, reachable by a short flight and road transport.

Little did I know how astonishingly beautiful the dry Atacama desert truly is.
