This picturesque adobe town is the gateway to the world’s driest desert, the Atacama. San Pedro is small and wonderfully relaxed, decked out with all the conveniences needed for those exploring the surrounding area – restaurants, bars and beds. From here, it’s easy to find adventure, be it in the form of sand dunes, moon-like valleys, volcanoes, geysers, brightly-hued lagoons, salt flats or even star-gazing. The town is also a centre of the Atacama’s indigenous culture, with plenty of places dedicated to keeping ancient traditions and local arts and crafts alive.
