Explora en Atacama, is based at the Hotel de Larache, in the oasis of San Pedro. This property puts visitors in the middle of a fantasy where exploration acquires a shape of its own. Close to San Pedro de Atacama village, the hotel is located in Ayllú (neighborhood) de Larache, on ample terrain of more than 17 hectares (42 acres). The Property grounds, formed by twenty small farming lots, are respected and maintained as a historical testimony by explora. Accommodations include all you need for relaxation and the best means for exploring the Atacama lands.
The Explora Atacama hotel & lodge has 50 comfortable rooms, each designed to maximize silence and privacy. They are tastefully designed with wooden ceilings and floors made of stone and tiles. Each has a small living area, a hydromassage bath and beds designed for deep, pleasurable sleep after a day of exploration. Finally, they provide you with a unique treat: the rooms are television-free.

The hotel's cuisine offers pure flavors based on the best-quality ingredients, many of which are produced locally. It is healthy and well-balanced, ideal for people going trekking, horseback riding or looking for a great Atacama restaurant while on other explorations. At Explora Atacama they use quinoa to prepare salads, risotto and tabouli. Quinoa is a cereal that grows at 3,500 meters (11,482 feet) above sea level and which has been cultivated since time immemorial by the Atacameño people. They also serve Pataska, a local recipe from the area which consists of a delicious stew of sweetcorn mixed with vegetables. To accompany your meal, you may choose from a wide variety of wines from the Gracia, Porta, Agustinos and Veranda wineries. We have varietals from Chile's main wine-producing areas. If you would like to explore Chilean wine in greater depth, you may wish to consult their premium list; these wines are available at additional charge.
Swimming pool area: The lodge has an extensive patio area totaling 1,700 meters2 (18,298 feet2). Within this area are four interconnected, outdoor swimming pools, two of them heated by solar panels. The deep silence is broken now and then by the songs of local birds. “Turi Puri” massage room: About 200 meters (656 feet) from the lodge is a colonial adobe building which they have restored. After a tiring day of exploration or simply for the pleasure of it, you may come here and place yourself in the gifted hands of their experienced masseuse. Taking advantage of the warm waters of the Puritama river, they built eight pools fed by hot springs and connected by wooden walkways. This is a very special place and some of their explorations end here. A 45-minute trip by minibus from the lodge and situated on some 7,500 hectares (18,532 acres) of land is one of their most treasured places: the Termas de Puritama.
