Explora Hotel - Atacama Desert


  • The first humans arrived in this area over 10,000 years ago, giving rise to what later became a rich culture concentrated in and around oases like the one at San Pedro. Diverse and unusual forms of wildlife have found ways to develop in the midst of high volcanos, salt flats, lagoons and ravines. The explorations we offer in Atacama have as their base our Hotel de Larache located in the San Pedro de Atacama oasis (22º 55’ S and 68º 12’ W), an area of surprising natural and cultural wealth.
  • Our lodge is located on a plain known as the Ayllu de Larache, once inhabited by an ancient Atacameño 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.


  • Our lodge has 50 comfortable rooms, each designed to maximize silence and privacy. They are tastefully designed with wooden ceilings and floors made of stone and tiles. Each has a small living area, a hydromassage bath and beds designed for deep, pleasurable sleep after a day of exploration.
  • Finally, we provide you with a unique treat: the rooms are television-free. There are three types of accommodation: Catur Suites: 4 suites measuring 50 meters2 (538 feet2), all with balconies and views of the countryside. Yali Room: 34 rooms measuring 33 meters2 (355 feet2), all with views of the countryside. Tular Room: 16 rooms measuring 33 meters2 (355 feet2), all with views of the Cordillera de la Sal.
