Definitely go to Chile and when you go certainly visit San Pedro de Atacama, the Santa Fe NM of Chile. When you go to San Pedro stay at Awasi. We stayed a long weekend recently and loved every minute of it. Our room was private, tranquil and perfect in every way. The outdoor shower seems sort of silly until you use it and realize how good it feels to shower in the sun and then recline in privacy to sun dry on a soft white chaise.
The food service was way beyond our expectations. The chef is up to date, inventive and really competent. A nice selection of Chilean wines is perfect for each meal and there are a couple of good Chilean beers.The perfect thing after a day in the desert. I could go on and on about the food and the table settings, the gracious dining room, the hip music at the right volume, the shawls at each table in the evening for your warming comfort and the many fire places to relax in front of after the meal. It is all just right.
The most essential thing amongst all of the nice things about Awasi is that you have a guide and your guide takes you on private excursions to some amazing places that you would be hard pressed to find on your own. There are packages without the guide service but we highly recommend that you take the guide and we also recommend Raimundo. He is just lovely and I don't think anyone is more interested in the area or knows more about it.
So, go to Awasi! and have a perfect vacation. But make sure you don't just go on the excursions and then stay in the resort because the town is very special and not to be missed.
