A number of cabañas (cabins) located on a field on the edge of Putre - actually a bit out of town. Only one bus company will get you to the centre of Putre - it's La Paloma from Arica. All other busses will stop on the Arica-La Paz road 4½ km from Putre and the La Chakana cabins are a... More

This little hotel offers clean and spacious bungalows with also spacious bathrooms and working hot showers. There is even a radiator (really necessary - at an alttude of 3,500 m, it can get quite cold at night). Each bungalow has a little bench outside under a roof, which is quite comfortable if you are a smoker. ;) The hotel is... More

We decided to stay in Putre for 2 nights to acclimatize before heading out on some exciting tours. I cannot recommend a stay at this place and will present the reasons below. I would suggest that you only consider staying here if you have no other choice. On the positive side, the place is dead silent at night! The first... More

Nice place made of independent cottages all with bathroom, hot water and AC for 24h and even and electric heater. Rooms big and clean. Definitely one of the best place in which we stayed in our Bolivia/Chile trip. It is a little bit out of town, so it is very quiet, but is better to have a car to get... More

It is in general OK but what could be annoying is that if you don't speak spanish you feel lost here. Nobody speaks any foreign language but spanish. Another problem is that if you don't have a car you must walk more than 1 km uphill to reach the restaurants in the village and at night it is really dark.... More

We stayed for five days while exploring the Altiplano and Lauca National Park. The place was clean, quiet, and handy. We cooked all our meals in the commons kitchen. The property is great for birding and relaxing while you acclimate to the high altitudes.

This gem, just outside of Putre was a very welcome change for us, after spending nights in such "charming", very noisy cities as Calama, Antofagasta and Arica. Putre itself is already in the middle of nowhere, and this place is outside of Putre. So at night you hear absolutely nothing. We had to get used to that after so many... More

The owners are exceptionally helpful and nice, and you can tell that they are enjoying what they are doing. Breakfast is great as is any advice regarding the organization and planning of trips off the beaten track around Putre and Lauca National Park. The owners make sure to take care of you even after your lodging there is over. Rooms... More

This place was great. The owner was super nice and helpful with tips. He knows the area really well. He speaks Spanish, English, German, and I think French. The place is fairly new, very clean, and well kept up. We liked the open space around the cabañas and the Alpacas. The younger one was super cute. And careful, the older... More
