Exceptional All-Inclusive Resorts

by Emma Sloley

Tierra Atacama, San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

If a three-Piña Colada lunch isn't your idea of adventure…

When guests arrive at Tierra Atacama, in the middle of northern Chile's Atacama Desert (at about 8,000 feet above sea level, the world's highest and driest), they're faced with a difficult decision: What to tackle first—the geyser fields, the volcanoes, the salt flats, or the Brobdingnagian sand dunes? The resort's hiking, biking, mountain climbing, and swimming excursions, led by bilingual guides who have an encyclopedic knowledge of the region, take full advantage of the otherworldly landscape. And, if you can muster the strength, you can do two outings per day. Each of the 32 spare, elegant suites are decorated with handcrafted South American furniture and textiles and have a private terrace with views of the Licancábur volcano. Evenings require nothing more strenuous than refilling your Pisco Sour glass in front of a roaring log fire.
