Spectacular views!!! There's no cel or internet signal so it's the best place to disconnect from the world. I went in the beginning of March, it was almost empty so it was even more relaxing. We went by car but I have heard there're vans...More

When we visited in january, it felt like we had the park to ourselves. It's an extensive area of millions of cacti of different sorts in an arid environment. A surreal and unique experience. The vistas of the coast are amazing too. The park has...More

Although just on the edge of the Atacalma desert it has lots of wildlife and the views of the mountains is just staggering. Park up and walk up to one of the views, but make sure you take plenty of water and sunscreen. I stopped...More

Pan de Azucar is definitely one of the highlights of Chile and Atacama desert - especially if you love stunning desert landscapes, cacti, beautiful beaches and are interested in geology/geography. Unfortunately it is really difficult to get there, as Chanaral, the town that is closest...More

Truly spectacular views and great day hikes. The four star rating is simply a warning that you need to bring your own provisions - we were told we could get fresh fish for dinner by everyone we met in the park, but were not told...More

Hi Polisonica! Do you speak spanish? I found your review very helpful. I was wondering if you have to make a reservation for the camping sites, I'm planning on going the first week of this march for a week more or less. You stayed at the lodge or went camping? Also, are the bathrooms far away? I hope I can still get a van from Chañaral to the Park so I don't have to take a taxi. Thanks for the fishermen tip to go back to Chañaral when needed. Apparently there isn't a place to buy water or food so it's better to buy it beforehand, but there are restaurants on the bay. Hope you had fun. Thanks in advance! :)

My husband and I are planning a 3 night/4 day trip from Santiago and considering going to the the Pan de Azur national park the first week of December. We would like a recommendation for which city to fly into from Santiago that will offer the most active options to hike in the park, mountain bike and access other more rigorous hikes. We would either like to stay in a nice cabin by the water and/or a hotel that can help plan excursions such as a mountain bike trip with a guide. We would plan to rent a car. If there is a tour operator or a local who can help to create a plan for the four days, I would also love a recommendation. Thanks!
