You cannot visit Bolivia and MISS OUT on seeing one of mother nature's miracles. It's sad to think one day these Salt Flats won't be here. Enjoy every second of them!

One of the best travel experiences ever made. The scenery is magic and irrepeatable. The long way by car in the middle of the white reminds of ice more than salt.

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

The rainy season is traditionally December to March. It depends on how much rain has fallen in the previous months, but it is likely there salt flat will be wet in April.
