Desert & Altiplano, Chile
Excellent staff and gastronomy. The guides are extremely patient and knowledgeable, which makes the experience even better.
Explora suggests an acclimatization program, staggering the tours so that you get used to the altitude and don't get "altitude sickness."
Although I was fine for the first 4 days, I didn't escape altitude sickness and everyone at the hotel was super helpful!
I already knew Explora Torres del Paine, which is also spectacular.
I recommend the entire Explora network! You can go with your eyes closed.
We have been to three different Explora Lodges (Torres del Paine, Rapa Nui, and now Atacama). The only constant is that they are all 5 stars. The facilities are modern, clean, and in extraordinary locations. The staff, from the gardeners to the waiters, the guides, and the host, are friendly, attentive, and above all, seem very happy to work at the lodges.
Being an all-inclusive facility, the extra you pay is well worth the experience. The excursions, on average, are geared towards activity. Hiking, biking, and other activities are always accompanied by expert and safe guides and excellent attention to detail.
We also participated in some tours offered in San Pedro, not by Explora. Explora's excursions avoid tourist crowds as they head to different and sometimes exclusive sites.
We highly recommend looking into this organization and its facilities if you are considering an activity-packed trip to remote South America.
Specialized in serving travelers who want to explore the region and its various biomes. Great guides, well-planned and suitable facilities. Excellent food. Great location (very close to the center of San Pedro de Atacama).View more

Cristobal and the team he leads make the experience unforgettable. They are always worried about the details. We went as a family group and they were always attentive and flexible to each one's different interests. Everyone's warmth makes you feel very comfortable. The food was spectacular!View more
