Why we recommend Awasi Atacama

Ten-roomed Awasa Atacama in Argentina is a cozy and secluded haven in a historic setting and has been designed to fit harmoniously into the local culture and environment. Expect comfortable and authentic rooms with excellent amenities, outstanding food, and the benefit of a private guide. We like the communal courtyard and the small pool offering a welcome respite from the heat.
