Sierra Gorda Vacation Packages
Staying in this popular region can be an adventure, so be sure to rent a vehicle and tour some of the other charming villages, towns and cities around Sierra Gorda.
Calama is around 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Sierra Gorda. This center offers a great selection of things to do and see, including Chiu Chui Church, Paniri Volcano and San Pedro Volcano. Pukara de Lasana, San Pablo Volcano and Chuquicamata are also good to visit.
Ensuring you have the time to learn some handy phrases in the local language separates the savvy travelers from the tourists. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" is the Spanish way to say "Would you like to dance with me?" You'll find that using "Este caballero pagará por todo", which means "This gentleman will pay for everything", can get you a long way.
The 18th of September is Independence Day, so if you're vacationing here at this time, keep in mind that some places may not be open as the country celebrates.
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend what's left of your Chilean pesos on last-minute mementos and bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to the characters you have met and the spots you've enjoyed.
