The Atacama Desert is one of the world's driest, 50 times more arid than California's Death Valley, some regions not having received rain for decades. This is a truly other-worldly landscape of volcanoes, lagoons and salt-flats. Indeed, the Atacama has been used on more that one occasion as a Mars location for films.
