THE NEW YORK TIMES NAMED THE ATACAMA DESERT AMONG THE BEST PLACES TO TRAVEL WORLDWIDE IN 2017

The Atacama Desert was recently reviewed in The New York Times under the headline “New ways to explore the world´s highest desert,” highlighting it as one of the 52 getaways you can´t miss this year 2017. Prepared annually for the travel section of the New York Times, the Atacama Desert was ranked second this year, making it a highly visible and anticipated destination in the world of tourism.

The list, which Canada tops at #1, highlights the Atacama desert and its clear skies. Unique in the entire world, these crystal-clear skies allow easy gazing at the stars—besides providing a great attraction for adventure lovers. Landscapes of dunes sculpted by wind and kaleidoscopic lakes of salt amaze even more from above, in a hot air balloon tour. The excursion is offered regularly since August 2016.

The Atacama Desert is one of the destinations attracting the greatest numbers of tourists to Chile. It is considered to be one of the driest deserts on the planet and provides an authentic natural experience where you can enjoy more than 375 attractions, among them including the Atacama Salt Flat and the El Tatio Geisers.

From Death Valley you can see the most remarkable parts of the Salt Mountain Range, which has been sighted as a point of interest by not only NASA but the film industry as well. In recent years several movies and television series have been filmed there including the Motorcycle Diaries (2004), based on the travel journals of Che Guevara; and Quantum of Solace (2008), from the James Bond series.

On its list the New York Times also described places such as Agra in India, Botswana in Africa, Dubrovnik in Croacia, Tijuana in México, Detroit, Hamburg in Germany, and Pedregal, found in a mountain valley in the south of Quito, Ecuador.

A beautiful sunset in the Amazon.

Our client Kris sent us this photo and wrote about it: “Our favorite part of our trip was our visit to the Amazon Rain Forest where we stayed an the Amazonas Ecopark Jungle Lodge. The facility was excellent, and the staff wonderful. Our tour guid Euyris was amazing, so personable fun, funny, warm and intelligent. I thought the 4 days in the Amazon might be a bit much since I am not so outdoorsy, but it ended up being the best part of the 10 day trip. We end to the Meeting of the Waters which was incredible, and took a walk in the rain forest and saw monkeys and Indian Villages and took boat tours, it was all so beautiful.”

Thank you for sharing this, Kris!
