If you visit the Atacama desert you should definitely go there. Make sure you go at sunset when the light is amazing -

My friend and host, Maria, picked me up from the Calama airport and we began our daylong adventure. Maria first took me to San Pedro de Atacama, where we browsed through the artisan markets. There is a very special feeling in this village filled with warm, welcoming shop-keepers. After touring the shops, we found an ice cream shop and had... More

the scenes are really spectacular, wish there were more hiking and exploring spots open where the crowds don't gather but otherwise a fantastic excursion.

Our tour ran from 4-8PM. The Valley of the Moon involved quite a steep hike, but the views were excellent. Also really enjoyed watching the sunset at Coyote Rock--spectacular colors (unable to capture the effect by camera!). Very memorable

If you visit San Pedro de Atacama, this tour is a must, amazing landscape and scenery, it is like being on another planet, and ending with a fabulous sunset. I went with Latchir tours and they did their best to time stops just before or after other groups which was great. The sunset spot is a busy one but lovely... More

We did a tour with a company I can't remember the name of and were bored in not time. It is just desert and sand dunes after all. It seems a lot like names have been made up for things to try and attract tourists, Coyote rock? Please... The best part was climbing through some caves, but there were so... More

Great scenery, sunset was pretty but went with a tour group which was mediocre and had to share the area with many, many other tourists. My least favorite visit in San Pedro de Atacama.

We took a tour with the Geologic Operator which gave us a lot of information about the creation of that landscape over millions of years. But if you just want to enjoy the views, take a bike and ride to the valle, it is only 6km.

Vale de la luna is different from anything you have already seen. The sand dunes are so Beautiful and the tunnels really seem the lunar surface.

You simply cannot miss seeing valle de la luna. We did a bus tour, but if you able bodied id suggest hiring bikes and spening the day here. We watched the sunset oveelooking the main area of the valle and it was absolutely breathtaking! If you only have limited time in San Pedro, do this.
