Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
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.

We booked the Yali Room for 4 nights in March 2019. Our room was nice - the same room configuration as the Tulur room and it had a view. Unfortunately our toilet was not able to cope with 2 adults and their daily needs. It continually blocked. This was very uncomfortable -

We love Chile, it’s truly an unique country; the people, the food, the wine, Santiago so much fun... But the Atacama desert is something else and the experience in Explora is beyond anything. We are a family of four with two 12 years old kids (girl and boy). We are lucky enough

We stayed 4 nights at the Explora Atacama and had a wonderful experience at the hotel and would recommend it to others without hesitation. Before traveling we spent a lot of time looking at options in the Atacama, everything from staying at a boutique hotel and hiring a guide

There would be no need for a renovation if there hadn't been a dreadful fire. We were there in September and the resort was stunning. I felt sick when I read about the damage that had occurred.

I have one more suggestion. Explore Atacama is still running the travesias. I stayed at Explora Atacama for six nights and then I went on the Uyuni Travesia. It was wonderful. You might consider that as an alternative. Claudia at Explora should be able to help you.

Hola Luis Alberto, Nos alegra saber que quieres venir al desierto de Atacama, un destino con increíbles contrastes para explorar. Puedes recorrer el Valle de la Luna con paisajes que parecen sacados de otro mundo, coloridas lagunas en el Altiplano, aprender del salar de Atacama o cabalgar por enormes dunas de arenas. Si te quedas con nosotros, tendrás más de 40 alternativas de exploración para escoger día a día y nuestros guías te aconsejarán para encontrar la mejor opción para ti. Tenemos caminatas, cabalgatas, paseos en bicicleta, exploraciones que combinan caminatas con tramos en van e incluso sesiones de observación astronómica en nuestro propio observatorio. Finalmente, es importante que sepas que todos nuestros programas incluyen alojamiento, traslado desde y hacia el aeropuerto, comidas y bebidas, y la realizar diariamente una exploración de día completo o dos exploraciones de medio día. Éstas son siempre lideradas por un guía bilingüe capacitado en nuestra propia Escuela de Guías y en grupos pequeños de hasta 8 personas. El uso de piscinas, hot tubs y saunas también está incluido en la tarifa. Te invitamos a cotizar a través de nuestro sitio web. Esperamos verte pronto, Equipo explora.

"do not bother with a yali or suite. Bring your own plumber."
"Go for a Suite with more space and great views"
"Rooms are comfortable. The only downside is the rather open-plan arrangement of the bathroom which some might find embarrassing!"
"The rooms are spacious and well appointed."
"Be sure to emphasize your fitness level of you want hikes/activities to be sufficiently challenging."
