Horseback riding on the moon
My wife and I spent 8 days at the Explora Atacama in Chile. From the moment we arrived in Caluma we we greeted warmly and cared for like royalty. The hotel is about 1 1/2 hrs drive thru what looks like the sea of tranquility except for the windmills. At the hotel we were greeted by Maureen who gave us a brief tour. The hotel is located in stunning setting overlooking the Liancancabur volcano. We chose the entry level room which was lovely. Very excellent bedding and bathroom and nice amenities such as robes, slippers, and safe.
The meals are all sit down with excellent table service including a nice wine selection and full bar.
The reason to come here is the Explorations. There are about 40 spanning biking, hiking, horseback riding and a few overland tours. Each activity is accompanied by a guide and driver. Every guide was patient, caring and extremely well educated. They are all required to pass a four month course. To really enjoy a good level of fitness and a sense of adventure. I should mention that the this resort attracts a multinational following of great guests to interact with.
