For me this tour was the last activity on my trip to South America. And it was a very cool ending. Our guide Ron was great, you could notice how much he likes this job. In the beginning he explained everything in Spanish and in...More

Wear warm clothes with a few extra layers, then lay back and look at the stars. Check the lunar calendar so that you can see the heavens in detail. Knowledgeable and helpful guide answers all your questions. There is hot chocolate and snacks, and the...More

We were delighted with our tour. There are different companies offering this, so maybe check out the different possibilities. The company with which we went offered viewing through two telescopes (one big, one smaller), a drink and transfer to and from the centre of the...More

This has been a huge disappointment. Very basic and repetitive explanation, no information at all about how in this area in the ancient times constellations were grouped into luminous and dark ones, no time for questions, and when I tried it and asked how to...More

I saw every star and planetary body in the universe. Well it felt like it. A totally amazing once in a lifetime experience. Words are inadequate to describe it. But if space isn’t your thing, then this is not for you.

I am not sure if these are the most powerful telescopes in san pedro- it is worth checking before you book with the stargazing companies. Staff were helpful and pleasant although only one seemed to be a real expert. Lack of toilet not great!

The airport is only a couple of kilometers away from San Pedro. I guess if you have a transfer or not depends on your hotel/hostel, so you should check with them. Guess it should not be a problem to fix a transfer. Hope this... More
