We only had 24 hours in San Pedro De Atacama, as the tiny desert town was just a short stop off on our way from Salta, Argentina to the Bolivian salt flats. Turns out that it was one of the busiest – and best – days of our trip and that San Pedro is absolutely packed with amazing things to do. We’ve been meaning to write about it for ages but have only just got round to it, so here goes!
We weren’t entirely sure what to expect when joining our G Adventures tour from Buenos Aires through to La Paz. After all, we’d spent 7/8 weeks happily travelling alone, being social when the mood took us and taking time to relax and do not very much when we felt like it. We only had a day to get to know everyone in Buenos Aires before we set off on the first leg of our journey – from Salta to San Pedro de Atacama.
