An Oasis in the Desert – San Pedro de Atacama

Atacama Desert, the driest non polar place on earth, is situated in northern Chile. San Pedro de Atacama checks the boxes for being:

☑️ One of the most natural, unpolluted places

☑️ One of the places with the bluest skies

☑️ One of the places with a spectacular sunset

☑️ One of the places where it’s own natural resources are used in building

☑️ One of the most self sufficient places

☑️ One of the places you experience four seasons in one day

☑️ One of the places where at night the stars look like diamonds

☑️ One of the most chill places
