Great experience, though we traveled in dry season we are lucky to have an area in salt flat which still have pool of water. We took photos covering the dry and wet effects. Careful with the sun burnt, hydrated and high altitude. Took a private...More
So many people there and all of them making it about them. This place is unique and special to the locals but all us western travellers do is turn it into a selfie, all about me" indulgence. How many dumb contrived photos of a indigenous...More
the visit of the Saltflat of uyuni was a dream come true.
if you have the time take the 3 day tour. this was one of the most amazing tours i have ever done. you think the salar is the Hotspot.... but no, there is...More
It was very clear to me that the Salar would be the biggest attraction in Bolivia but I never imagined it would be that breathtaking!
I took the 3 night trip leaving from San Pedro De Atacama, It would probably be a good time to...More
A visit here really is a trip of a lifetime. Our son had told us about it, but nothing prepares you for the reality. 10,000 sq km of pristine salt flat - fabulous. On the edge of the plain are lovely lagoons with birdlife and...More
This is an awesome place to visit. A must do if you are in Potosi department. Very recommended to do the 3 day tour including the Eduardo Avaroa National Park offered in Uyuni. Make sure you bring your camera and glasses, and prepare for the...More
At times a out of body experience as you are so small feeling like an ant lost in the great white emptiness. At time feeling like a movie as one of the Star Wars movies was shot here. Visit and stay in one of the...More
With three weeks in Bolivia and Peru, Uyuni was on our list as starter after staying in La Paz to get used to the altitude. Even if the desert is totally white, I'm surprised of the size, as it's that huge. We drove here for...More
I was there March 22 and was told it was the End of the rainy season. There was still water on the salt flat, which is important to get the mirror effect. I think April is also a good time to travel, but some areas may have... More
I was there March 22 and was told it was the End of the rainy season. There was still water on the salt flat, which is important to get the mirror effect. I think April is also a good time to travel, but some areas may have already dried. Enjoy your time there, it's worth
I am from Bolivia and I personally rather do air, hotel and excursions separate; most of the time I find this to be the most economical and practical way to travel, plus I have more control on choices. I used BOA Airlines... More
I am from Bolivia and I personally rather do air, hotel and excursions separate; most of the time I find this to be the most economical and practical way to travel, plus I have more control on choices. I used BOA Airlines for the flights from La Paz to Uyuni; large aircraft and excellent flights at around $us180 round trip. (much better than traveling 20 + hours each way by bus; there are bad stories about bus trips; would not recommend).
My hotel in Uyuni: Hotel de Sal Casa Andina; located in town. Great hotel, fantastic service and very well priced at around $us35.00 per night. I used Esmerlanda Tours for my excursion to the salt flats and a second day to the lagoons which they designed exclusive for us at our request. They were reliable, knowledgeable and very well priced. They pick you up from the airport. The day excursion includes lunch.
I hope this helps you. Uyuni is a must see; it is fabulous.
