I had a pretty good time in San Pedro it is such a nice small town, I had 10 piscos first night and the amounts are so much you will get so wasted, I did san boarding in the morning inbetween drunk and hangover and it was still really good and I got an awesome video made by the instructor at one point I did a front flip by mistake and landed it sort of. Anyway I booked the tour for Atacama which was the plan and very worth it, its got lagunas, pink flamingos, rock formations, geysers and of course salt. I booked a tour through cordillia but I think all tour operators are pretty much the same, it cost me 65000 peso or $130 US, it includes transport, hostel and food so just need to bring the water, I survived on 2 bottles, you will get free coke and rea so don{t worry too much, but lip balm could be really helpful too. My group was ok I made more friends who were in the other jeep, we all heading to La Paz in couple of hours. Funny thing during tour we went out to town across desert 7 mins maybe at night and on way back the hostel turned lights off so we were stranded in the desert pitch black but with luck we found it in an hour or so. The jeeps do break down a lot during the trip though, and you will probably not get a shower, but this is a defiantly must do.
