Average time to visit

Day time temperatures are luminous and agreeable all year round. A characteristic of the desert climate is the marked fluctuation in temperature between day and night. In winter (June, July and August) the average temperature is 22ºC during the day and at night it goes down to around 4ºC; temperatures can occasionally go below freezing. In summer (December to February) the temperature varies between 28ºC during the day and 16ºC at night. During these months the temperature can reach 32ºC. January-March can sometimes receive a little rainfall and cloudy skies.

The boutique Casa Atacama is ideally located in central San Pedro and only a short walk from its shops and restaurants. Casa Atacama is an excellent base for visiting the desert's highlights with good amenities and 25 simple but stylish accommodations.

Situated a few blocks from charming San Pedro’s main square, Casa Atacama is a small lodge offering some of the best value to be found in the Atacama Desert. The lodge and offers just 30 bright, spacious en-suite rooms and suites decorated in a chic minimalist style enlivened by local handicrafts and textiles. Priding itself on being an eco-friendly property (Casa Atacama was the first in the region to adopt sustainable practices), in-room amenities are environmentally sound and solar panel heating is provided. All rooms have their own terrace, which overlooks the garden and swimming pool if you are staying in a Suite.

Meals are served in Casa Atacama’s La Romeria Restaurant where you can enjoy local artisan produce with a Mediterranean twist, and the lodge even has its own deli-style boutique selling home-made preserves, oils and more. Spa facilities include a sauna and a massage room, and guests can also relax on sunloungers by the pool, or rent bikes to explore the surroundings. An outstanding array of activities from hiking and mountain biking to 4WD excursions are offered, and the excellent and informative English-speaking guides will take you into the heart of the Atacama, leading you along desert trails to take in stunning vistas of vast saltpans, venturing into desert canyons, and allowing you to appreciate the hidden natural wonders of the desert and the extraordinarily tenacious life that somehow manages to gain a foothold in this inhospitable landscape. For the all-inclusive package, 1 lunch and 1 half day excursion are included on the arrival OR departure day (depending on your flight times). Excursions take place in groups with other guests and are co-ordinated on arrival. We recommend booking star-gazing in advance (at additional cost) as spaces are limited.
