We self-drove around the Atacama area with a truck (not 4WD) in early April after acclimatizing in San Pedro for 2 days. We left San Pedro around 10 am and arrived at El Tatio around noon. We were the ONLY people in the park, it...More

It is an amazing place but never buy anything from Teckara Tourism. The employee does not have professionalism. They forget the customers who have already paid and after make fool of the tourists. Motorists are sexist and unpleasant. Horrible company. If you want to have...More

The geysers are worth getting up early for and really atmospheric. They are situated right on the border of Bolivia and at a high altitude, drinking the local “tea” really helps alleviate alt symptoms, you get out of breath easily and feel slight headache. Only...More

Geyser del Tatio is a “must see” attraction! Amazing! But a few challenges, a few warnings! The place is very high (more than 4 thousand meters above sea level) and very very cold (minus 10 degrees in the morning). The road to get there has...More

A day visit starting early morning driving North from San Pedro. Various steam geysers large and small, some just noisy, creates a weird vista. Hugely popular with tourists. Be warned, the journey is 90 minutes or more mostly on terrible roads. Once there, be aware...More

You can drive close to most of the geysers so one must walk for about five minutes or about 100-200 yards as I recall to be at the geysers. However most of them can also be seen from further away so one not need to walk... More
