Tierra de Atacama
Posted Dec 23, 2013
After the flight to Calamma and transfer to the Hotel all we wanted was the bathroom and a glass of water. However the Manager was more concerned about the Hotels indemnity insurance, copies of our Visa and passport documents than our welfare. In addition, no copy of what we signed was provided. However this was a minor glitch as my partner and i thoroughly enjoyed the six nights we stayed here. The all inclusive package is great, the guides, bar and wait staff were fantastic. The food is also very good, why they offer fish in the desert was odd, always go for the land based offerings, the lamb cutlets were just superb! My partner disliked the colour of the pool water, to me it was fine considering you're in the desert. I was told that the Atacama experience is like diving with the whale sharks at Ningaloo, a once a lifetime opportunity. My friends were, 'right on the money'. In addition, we met some amazing people.
