Starting with northern Chile, the international media “India Times”, highlighted the astronomical benefits and romanticism that the Atacama Desert offers, publishing a photo gallery entitled 20 unusual honeymoon destinations around the world, where the sunsets of this unique area are highlighted.  “Located beside the Pacific Ocean, Atacama Desert is the driest desert in the world.  The main attraction of this destination is to watch the sunset from the Moon Valley.

The Atacama Desert also made headlines in the U.S. magazine Waow”, where it was described as “A Real Oasis in a Desert.  “The beauty of the desert is overwhelming.  El Tatio geysers, the Valley of the Moon in the Salt Mountains, the Valley of the Dinosaurs, the large salt mines of Atacama, the Licancabur Volcano, and the sky filled with stars, planets, satellites…”
