ALMA is the largest ground based astronomical project in existence. It is a global collaboration, cost USD1.4 billion, and is 50km from San Pedro. That tells you how good Atacama stargazing is. This is one of their pics.

Itinerary

Met upon arrival at Calama airport and transfer to San Pedro. This afternoon watch the sunset from the Mars and Moon valleys, which turn into a lunar landscape at dusk.

Your choice today, either visiting the Tatio Geysers, or the Altiplano lakes. Depart before dawn to explore the Tatio Geysers, a geothermal field at 4,300 metres where steam clouds soar up to 50 metres in height lighting up as the suns rays greet them at dawn. Or travel through
the small villages of the Altiplano to Miñiques and Miscanti lagoons also at 4.300m. Visit the salt flats to see the flamingoes then reach the stark and striking lagoons and walk (slowly) around them.

Day at leisure to further explore or just enjoy the village.

Transfer to Calama airport for onward flight, or perhaps transfer to Bolivia for more desert adventures.
