Chile's Atacama Desert!

Ever wanted to vacation on Mars?

  

In Northern Chile the Atacama Desert inserted between the Andes mountains and the Pacific ocean is also known to be the driest desert in the world. 

Because of the Extra-Terrestrial Soil, Soil samples from this region are very similar to samples from Mars; for this reason, NASA uses the desert for testing instruments for missions to the red planet and has also been used as a location for filming Mars scenes in both film and TV.

Deluxe hotels are more abundant than one would think, the town of Atacama has a lovely village ambiance with surprisingly unique restaurants in both décor and cuisine, for this reason it is so much more than an adventure travel destination.
