We were on a tour of the Valle de la Luna that ended watching the sunset and Mirador de Kari and the Piedra del Coyote. The only reason this gets "Very good" are of course the views - which are well worth seeing. San Pedro as a whole is extremely "touristified", and the tours are very standardized, so a lot... More

We rented bikes in San Pedro and spent the day in the park very happily. It's a very easy ride to the park (except for just one medium-sized hill right outside of San Pedro) but there are a few hills inside, but it's not too bad. The sights are incredible! Otherworldly! I LOVED all of it! We loved being there... More

Visited Valley of the Moon as part of our Sth America Express tour with Tucan Travel. Started from San Pedro de Atacama at around 4pm. Views and landscapes were incredible - especially from the tops of dunes and outcrops. In our 60's, but all the walking/climbing/crawling was no problem. Sunset was brilliant, with photo opportunities changing by the second. Temperature... More

You can imagine walking on the moon in all the craters of the Valley of the Moon. My spouse was on crutches but still managed the 25 minute walk through the caverns with many twists and turns where you have to get on your haunches and duck your head. But you can skip this part of the tour and still... More

Exceptional variety of formations . Lotsa other tourists but place is so large, no problems. Staff is pleasant and exceptionally patient. Don't settle for the overlook... drive through the whole park.

Do not miss the sunset and be sure to be there early to get a good spot. Unbeliveable changing of colours on the mountain side and the clouds was so red and orange. Landscape is like from another planet.

Wear shorts and hiking boots. Enjoys the beautiful views of the desert. You can either take a short your or a longer one that goes through the cavern. If you have problems with vertigo and heights do the short tour. Make sure to use lots of sunblock, sunglasses and a hat.

This was the most beautiful place around. Loved every single bit of it! Takes 3-4 hours to see everything
