I saw every star and planetary body in the universe. Well it felt like it. A totally amazing once in a lifetime experience. Words are inadequate to describe it. But if space isn’t your thing, then this is not for you.

I am not sure if these are the most powerful telescopes in san pedro- it is worth checking before you book with the stargazing companies. Staff were helpful and pleasant although only one seemed to be a real expert. Lack of toilet not great!

I missed every shooting star that went by - probably the only person in our small group of 14 that missed one - but telescopes are cool, presentation was informative, guides were helpful and we were glad we did this.

The guide was excellent. Although it was cloudy in the beginning of the session, he managed to explain and show us a lot of the night sky. He is very knowledgeable and the telescopes were nice and big :)

Rodrigo's enthusiasm is really contagious. He presents his knowledge in a way that is funny and easy to understand. The photos taken with the telescope are very impressive.

Obviously, this is a star gazers dream. Nice to see all the stars and hear about their Atacamean myths. Do it.

The airport is only a couple of kilometers away from San Pedro. I guess if you have a transfer or not depends on your hotel/hostel, so you should check with them. Guess it should not be a problem to fix a transfer. Hope this... More
