A Self-Driving Guide to Atacama Desert in Chile: Itinerary & Must See Spots

During our four months travel across South America, one place that we kept reminiscing about was our road trip to Atacama desert in Northern Chile.

We spent a total of 5 days in San Pedro de Atacama, traveling in all directions to see as much as possible. Still, we…

5 reasons to book a hotel microstay in South America

Travelling in South America is a true adventure and sometimes not a comfortable one – there are many long-distance bus rides involved, the quality of hotels is inconsistent, there are language barriers and more.
