This enormous volcano, sacred to indigenous people, appears on the desert horizon and immediately captivates the attention of those who visit San Pedro de Atacama. It is dormant, but does not appear so. Rising above the high plains, it is part of the Andes Mountain Range and its crater contains the fifth largest lagoon in the world.
The native ingredients of the Atacama Desert – the driest desert in the world – have been utilized for centuries by the local people. Used in different preparations, herbs like rica-rica, pingo-pingo, and copa-copa, provide a multitude of health and wellness benefits. All of these herbs and plants grow in the desert at over 2,200 meters above sea level.
A wellness experience featuring nature’s colors and aromas
Colored salt baths are one of the locally-inspired elements that characterize Uma Spa at Tierra Hotels. Special aromas are released each time these salts are used, because they are plant-dyed using an ancient traditional method.
