The absolute best part of my job are the amazing travel opportunities that I get. I was recently asked to go on a trip to Chile, and I could not have said yes any faster! This was my first trip to South America, but certainly not my last!
Our first stop was Tierra Atacama, in the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile. This is a luxury adventure lodge, which includes all meals, drinks, and daily activities. Let me be clear- I am definitely not an adventure traveler. But it was so fun to have such a new and different travel experience, and to stay in such a beautiful destination!
I did SO much in the few days I was in Atacama! When you arrive at Tierra Atacama, a guide goes over all of the options of excursions available and makes recommendations based on your fitness level and what you are interested in.
That afternoon we did a long bike ride to Cejar Lagoon, where you float in the salt lagoon. It was such a crazy feeling floating in the lagoon, and not even being able to put your arms or legs down into the water!
The next morning we got up early to see the Tatio Geysers, and then had breakfast just after sunrise. Such a beautiful experience!
That afternoon I relaxed at their amazing pool- just look at that view!
I really enjoyed the hotel. It has really modern design and every suite has an outdoor shower with great views. The food was amazing as well, with menus that changed daily. It was really fun to be active during the day, and then have wine and a wonderful dinner each evening. It was a true luxury, adventure experience.
I would highly recommend a stay at Tierra Atacama for couples that are really active and looking to do something different. This destination can be paired with many other places in South America as well.
Next up- my adventure continues at Tierra Patagonia!
