How much is the cost of entry to the attractions near San Pedro de Atacama?

As we prepared for our trip to San Pedro de Atacama, Chile we read many of the national parks and attractions near San Pedro de Atacama don’t accept credit card.

Our time exploring Chile was coming to and end – next up the bus to Uyuni to visit the world-renowned Uyuni Salt Flats – in Bolivia where our Chilean pesos would be worthless.

As San Pedro de Atacama itself has notoriously fickle ATMs – and many of the attractions are a good two hour drive from San Pedro – we erred on the side of caution by withdrawing sufficient cash to pay for all the attractions (if we had time).

We couldn’t find a reliable source for all this information in one spot, so we made our own table with the San Pedro de Atacama Chile entrance fees to the attractions.

Please leave a comment with any new prices so we can keep these figures up to date. Gracias!

There is so much to do in San Pedro and not enough time.

Laguna Cejar was a beautiful attraction but our favourite attraction was actually free!
