On the way to the salt flat, stop through Toconao to browse its handicraft market, and visit Quebrada de Jerez.
To the south of San Pedro de Atacama we find our first stop: Toconao. This town was built entirely with liparite stone, of volcanic origin, it is also recognized for the interesting artisan objects of the same material. We will visit its square, the church of San Lucas and its bell tower built in 1750, made of adobe and cactus wood, one of the most imposing in the region and declared a National Monument. In the Jerez Valley we will see the richness of the Toconares, a canyon that thanks to the microclimate that it has and the waters that descend from the mountain range, enjoys fertility and turns the sector into one of the greenest places in the desert, we will observe fruit trees and varied flora. Finally, we will visit the Soncor sector of the great Salar de Atacama. At Laguna Chaxa we can enjoy the varied bird species and the color of the flamingos, the deep blue of the Atacama sky, the heights of the Andean volcanoes and the red sunset will give us the farewell to return to San Pedro de Atacama.

This trip is perfect for those who are short of time. I had only half a day in Atacama and the tour took me to the salt flats we saw the Chaxa lagoon and the famous flamingos. We also stopped in Toconao to look at local handicrafts. The sunset over the desert was amazing.
