Explora en Atacama

Explora en Atacama, is located in the Ayllu de Larache (initially a kin-based community of the ancient Atacameño people), near the village of San Pedro de Atacama. Explora Atacama's grounds are made of 20 indigenous parcels over 42 acres, and committed to preservation out of a profound respect for the area’s original inhabitants. The lodge has 50 rooms with breathtaking views of desert landscapes and the Cordillera de la Sal. At Explora, the motto is to actively seek disconnection from everyday routine, which is why rooms are not equipped with televisions or Wi-Fi, found only in the lodge’s common areas.
