There are thousands of agencies in San Pedro de Atacama, so we have to choose wisely that the “cheap” ones don’t get expensive in the end. Ayllu is an agency with 15 years of experience in Atacama and has focused on Brazilian tourists and also on the luxury concept.

Therefore, the guides speak good Portunhol (Portuguese + spanish) and the service team is Brazilian.

The agency offers the main tours through Atacama always for small groups of a maximum of 10 people to make the experience more intimate and exclusive. Moreover, a curiosity that I always had, Ayllu means “community” or “family group”, in Kunza dialect.

In addition to the tour of Lagunas Altiplánicas and Piedras Rojas, we did the Lagunas Escondidas (Hidden Lagoons) tour with Ayullu. I will tell how that went in one of the next posts.
