What a fabulous place to stay. They definitely go the extra mile to ensure you have a great stay. A gift bag for each person in the room on arrival plus a little chocolate box, free wifi to name a few. The rooms aren't big but thet are clean and have everything you need plus very quiet.

Instead, I shared a beautiful sunset in the middle of nowhere, with friends who are just as cheap as I am. For free. I think I like that version of San Pedro de Atacama ...
... hard part. It was getting out that was going to be the issue. After using the outdoor change rooms provided, we quickly jumped into the pool. The initial heat was delicious and almost painful to touch. Slowly my body temperature, particularly my hands and feet, adjusted and we slowly melted away. Eventually, our bodies adjusted too much, as we found ourselves swimming around the pool looking for a natural hot spot. After about 20 minutes of swimming, we finally mustered up ...
