Though the stunning white salt and blue waters of these lagoons were as others have said amazing, Talar was blew them out of the water, the incredible colours of the... More

Absolutely amazing. Clean. Well kept. The facilities are clean and amazing. Student price is a great deal at 1500. Spent a lot on a taxi out there but it was my favorite thing to do almost on the whole trip. Avoid the rocks on the right side. Go straight to the left when you are approaching the water. Big mistake... More

A short ride out of San Pedro into the mountains give you a beautiful view of the lagoons. The entry fee to this location was $2,000 clp or $1,500 for senior citizen which seems to be anyone over 40. Walking up and down from the lagoon is relatively easy as the incline is about 20%. You cannot enter the water... More

No doubt is the best excursion in Atacama. It's a long drive passing through Socaire, a small village in kind of oasis. Bring you camera and a big memory card because we can't decide what to shoot first and when stop shooting, because all the region is so photogenic. The wind can be very intense in the open parts, so... More

did the atacama desert tour and at the end we visited this beautiful place. This Lagoons are really beautiful but if you come from the Uyuni through the Uyuni Desert, you already have seen pretty similar lagoons.

Vecunias watch you with inquisitive eyes. The icy lakes reflect the beauty of the sky, the volcanoes and the yellow desert plants. Even the road trip up into the mountains is beautiful!

It is very cold so take a coat. You do not get very near to the lagoons which is not what is shown in the brochures. The trip is worth it for the views they are breathtaking. Don't go with Turistour from San Pedro they are rubbish!!!
