Great place, specially Valle de la Luna. Enjoyed walking there, you have feeling that you are for real at the moon. Be sure to take water with you and long sleeves , as at sunset starts to be windy and with the sand is not nice. If you go with kids, keep eye on them all the time!

The valley is a must see for anyone who visits San Pedro. The colors and landscapes are unique, specially during the sunset.

A 1/2 day trip with a sunset at Piedra del Coyote, it's a must when you visit Atacama. Any of the local tour agencies can take you there.

I came here on a tour with Layana tours. It was my first day in San Pedro, and I wasn't quite used to the altitude yet. It took a bit of effort to walk up to the top of some of the hills, and it was super windy! Bring sunglasses and something to cover your nose and mouth for sure,... More

Definitely visit the Valle de la Luna. It is one of the most fascinating places I've been to. The entire area is covered in salt and you see the mountains in the background.

We hired bikes (3000 pesos for 5 hours), it's great by bike as long as you are reasonably fit and can get up a few hills, an amazing way to be surrounded by the landscape rather than looking at it out of a bus window.

Aptly called Moon Valley as that is what it seems like as you meander over and through this amazing scenery.

Brilliant! One of the highlights was walking in these natural, unadulterated caves, watch your head if you're tall, bring hiking boots and lots of photo space. You will be transported to a most arid place, a jewel of a desert and mountainous place.

Much like Utah parks in the states - but so amazing and worth visiting. Any tour you can get on is worth it a prices aren't bad and it's gorgeous!
