Huasco Valley

Known as the Garden of Atacama, discover the Huasco Valley and its many small towns and farming villages that make up this area. Enjoy the eco-tourism, agro-tourism and cultural activities you can do in the area.

Get to know the strength of the country traditions rooted in the Diaguita culture, traditions that are felt strongly in the valley. Travel to the enormity of space under one of the clearest skies in the world and get to know the indigenous names of the stars.

Visit the sand dunes by the beach, which after rare rainfalls provide the wonderful Flowered Desert. Be amazed by its colors and have fun at the Llanos de Challe Park with beautiful cacti and wild guanacos that run free.

With nice warm weather throughout the year, this is the ideal destination for sightseers. Take long walks in its surroundings or trek through them, since this experience will be well worth repeating.

Sometimes a new day is all you need for a new perspective. Sometimes though, you have to be a bit more intentional about clearing your mind.

As I set my alarm for 4am, and rolled over in Hostel Desert – our cute little base in San Pedro de Atacama, I felt excited for the next day’s events. Over the past year or so of travel blogging I’d visited Costa Rican waterfalls, Guatemalan volcanoes, Mayan ruins, medieval Croatian cities and been swimming in several oceans, lakes and rivers. Up until now though, I’d never seen a geyser. In fact, I didn’t really know what a geyser was.


if you think my hands are full, you should see my heart ♥ gratitude.

Desierto Florido


Atacama is surprising. It looks like it has more surprises for me than I could ever expect. I heard about the phenomenon of desierto florido
