The Atacama Desert is known as the driest place on the planet..or at least on them! These gardens are a lesser known spot in town, but probably one of the most important. Take the time to stop and investigate the fascinating plants that thrive in this inhospitable place!

Walk to the cacti gardens is one of the highlights of Atacama Desert. Here you can see the iconic desert cactus. They only grow one to a few centimeters per year due to the extremly dry climate.

El Valle de los Cactus se encuentra en la localidad de Guatín, al norte de San Pedro, a unos 20 kms. Merece la pena acercarse a ver los cactus de más de 7 metros de altura que hay concentrados en esta zona, muchos de ellos de más de 100 años de antigüedad. El paisaje es asombroso.
