A must do in South Amererica. Atacama is an astounding place with so many wonderful landscapes to experience and explora was an amazing way to do so.

It was just great! Even at my age of 71 I could enjoy many unforgettable experiences. Good advising and very good guides - friendly and with exzellent Knowledge. The all-inclusive concept works perfectly here. And of you want to see something else you can bike to the village nearby.

Explora hits the sweet spot at the intersection of value, amenities, comfort, and activities. Attentive and friendly staff without being smothering. Delicious food and wine without being pretentious, this carnivore even enjoyed several vegetarian meals during his stay. Well appointed rooms and common areas with plenty of space. A multitude of daily activities to choose from to keep a week's...

The excursions are nicely planned to suit all levels and ages. At this remote place when GPS may not work well and dirt roads may not well marked, you need an experience guide and safe driver to take you to sites. The hotel provides experts guides who are not only friendly, experience, knowledgeable and well trained. We met guides who...

There are plenty of breathtaking sights and each evening one plans 2 guided hikes for the following day. The guides are exceptionally knowledgeable on the surroundings & so friendly -they are eager to tell you more...

As I mentioned in my Explora Patagonia review, we did both in one trip and (despite one long travel day in the middle) it was wonderful. We chose Explora Atacama because we had already chosen Explora Patagonia and thought it was best to keep it consistent, but have heard great things about the other lodges in Atacama. The Explora Atacama...

You go to Atacama for the peerless desert scenery, the overwhelming wonder of the sea of stars at night and, if you are fit and so inclined, high altitude hiking. Explora Atacama offers all of that and wonderfully comfortable, yet not plush, accommodations, superb, healthy food, and a truly magnificent view. Like Club Med without the adolescent cutesiness and a...

My wife and I just returned from a stay at explora atacama. The rooms were nice, food and beverage program good and we really enjoyed the explorations and guides. Moon valley and hot springs should make everyone's exploration list. Also, stargazing is a must if it's clear - the 'class' at the explora observatory was great!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our lodge is located on a plain known as the Ayllu de Larache, once inhabited by an ancient Atacameno community. We have respected the original layout of the land and restored and maintained some of the buildings.Opened in 1998, our lodge is situated on 17 hectares (42 acres) of grounds just a few minutes' walk from the town of San Pedro de Atacama. In the area surrounding the lodge, we have maintained the ancient pathways and buildings which form a labyrinth that invites exploration.There are 50 rooms housed in three long buildings, positioned to form a central square planted with large trees for ample shade. On the fourth side of the square is the building which houses the lodge's public spaces. The views from the lodge's broad terraces enable you to enjoy Atacama's vast chain of volcanic mountains.In 2008, we set ourselves the challenge of intensifying your explora Atacama experience, remodeling the furnishings and the indoor and outdoor spaces. Now that the work is complete, we are pleased to be able to offer you new facilities and services. ... more   less
