Calama

Not a great place to visit, most people just pass through. We only stayed here overnight because we had a bag stolen while waiting to change buses in the station, which (it turns out) is a common occurrence. Pretty much daily even; at least one was stolen the day before we arrived, ours was stolen and we just missed another being stolen the day after ours while we waited for our bus out of there.

The town itself is unappealing, with horribly overpriced hotels (crap and expensive) and few redeeming features, although it is possible to go out and tour at least one of the nearby mines.
