At Cascada, we believe in making sure that the programs we provide are the best, which means trying them out for ourselves! For this adventure, our USA Account Executive, Keila Jimenez, shares her experience flying over the Atacama Desert at sunrise with our "Atacama Sunrise Ballooning" extension program, available as an add-on for Atacama programs.
I call this adventure "Floating over the Atacama", which is the driest desert in the world!
I see skies of blue and clouds of white, the bright blessed day, the sacred night
And I think to myself… what a wonderful world.
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky, are also on the faces of people going by.
I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do.
They’re really saying… I love you.
Would you like to go to Mars? Bounce around on the moon? Walk through a rainbow? Float through the stars? Be somewhere truly out of this world? You can do all that in the Atacama Desert.
Step into the otherworldly majesty of this high altitude desert with Cascada’s Expediciones’ key account manager for Latin America and Europe while she embarks on a trip through the highlights of the Atacama Desert, and see and experience this incredible part of Chile through her eyes.

Wind ripples at the ivy-green tarp covers, dappled by sunlight and passing clouds. Staff in cozy sweaters and fleeces bustle around, delivering fresh sheets, blankets, and fluffed pillows.
