Pick one up and you'll be zipping along the main streets of Copiapó and Vallenar in the blink of an eye. Hoping to get out and explore a bit more of the area? These nifty vehicles are great for short, scenic outings if you're traveling light.
First of all, there's a huge range of both high-end and economy vehicles to rent in Atacama. What you end up going with is largely dependent on how much you're willing to spend as well as what you plan to do. Prestige vehicles offer unparalleled comfort and class. If you want to indulge yourself, why not grab an elite SUV, or perhaps a flashy mid-sized sedan?
