There is a lot to do in San Pedro but the valley is a must!! We rented bikes for the day for about USD7 and crossed the whole valley (7 hours there and back from town - moderate, doable but pack water). Keep an eye out for the salt caves just in the beginning of the valley (way after passing... More

The tour costs 10,000 pesos (you can barter for less at tour offices) then you pay 3,000 park entry fee so it's a reasonable price. We were picked up at 3pm then it's only 10 mins to the valley. The tour guide was lovely first explaining in Spanish then English and was informative. The first thing we did was walk... More

For a restaurant in the "middle of nowhere" this is a good choice.The food is ok, the menu is not so rich but after all you are in the desert ! :) But the quality is good, the waiters are nice. Try to drink local pisco sour with Rica-Rica. The website of Trip advisor is driving me crazy, i wrote... More

Out of this world views! A must see at anytime of the day - sunset is spectacular. From caves to long walks to taking in the views of the surrounding volcanoes takes about 3 hrs depending on your individual needs. You can do the tour by yourself or pay a tour company.

However lots of people, be prepared for a mob watching it with you. Also don't show up at closing time (6 i believe). Although official closing time was not for another 30 minutes they kicked us out due to there not being enough time to see everything. All in all cool place. Caves are fun.

We rented bikes for 3000 pesos each and went on our own. The park entrance was 2500 so it was a very cheap day especially considering the tour would cost around 20000. It was easy to find and the renter will point out the way. You will see some beautiful landscapes and don't forget to bring a flashlight for discovering... More

We booked all of our tours through Desert Adventure after recommendation from our hotel. We booked our tours the day before and there was no problem getting a seat. Price was reasonable, 3 tours for around $100 per person which included transportation. Ossie, our guide for 2 of the 3 tours, including the Moon and Death Valley was amazing. He... More

When we reached this place on 18th March,2015 around 4:30 pm, the tourism office informed us that the Valley de la Muerte was closed due to recent flooding of the rivers nearby and the way was closed! Hence, we went only to Valle de la Luna which was nothing spectacular! No way near to Grand Canyon or Wadi Rum of... More
