Keteka is a marketplace where travelers can book unique, authentic tours and activities with validated local guides. While serving in the Peace Corps in rural Panama, the founders were working on community tourism projects and realized that they wanted to create a better way to connect purposeful travelers with authentic, local experiences. "Keteka" is an indigenous Panamanian word that means "to get close to" and that's our goal, to bring you closer to your destination's culture, food, people, and natural environment.
Learn About And Experience The World’s Most Amazing View Of The Night Sky In The Atacama Desert.
For centuries, astronomers and observers have traveled from all over the world to view the universe from the Atacama desert. Due to the uniquely clear skies almost all year around, they come to experience the cosmos in a way that can’t be experienced anywhere else.
In this ethno-astronomy tour we present the night sky through an Andean lens, the same lens that is still observed and recognized by native Atacameños.
You will leave knowing the name and significance of every constellation, and with knowledge and respect for the native people and their beliefs.
This tour will pick you up at your place of lodging between 21:00 and 21:30.
