The Experience

The best place to rest and disconnect from the city. Good atmosphere, good spaces and the best people to share. San Pedro de Atacama is a town set on an arid high plateau in the Andes mountains of northeastern Chile. Its dramatic surrounding landscape incorporates desert, salt flats, volcanoes, geysers and hot springs. The Valle de la Luna in the nearby Los Flamencos National Reserve is a lunatic depression with unusual rock formations.

Minha experiência no Llama Loka foi muito além do que eu esperava! A equipe foi super receptiva, simpática e me fizeram sentir em casa. O hostel tem uma energia incrível e os horários dos turnos podem ser combinados entre os voluntários para que todos consigam visitar e conhecer os pontos turísticos.
Foi minha primeira experiência com o Worldpacker e meu único arrependimento foi não ter ficado mais.
