Just go. You won't regret it. Bring something warm to wear, sunglasses and sunscreen... just in case. The weather conditions vary. Just go.

We did not see the Bolivian Salt Flats yet but we did see some others through the years. Safe to say that these ones are brilliant! Its the combination of the trip from Purmamarca and the flats that make this trip a true gem. Once you are there you are obliged to take a "guided" tour for 200 pesos per... More

- We had no clouds and a sunny day so it was so wonderful. - The way up there from Purmamarca (a small hour drive) was incredible. You drive up to almost 4000 meters through winding mountainroads and the views are amazing. - The Salinas are astonishing too. Do not expect them to be like in many pictures where it... More

We visited the Salinas during one afternoon, driving our own car from Purmamarca. I think that the combination of drive + salt lake is definitely worth the visit, as you can see from my pictures. When you get to the salinas you need to pay a small amount to a local guide to take you around, which is worth it.

Itand the salt flat was also fairly basic. was a large salt plane and interesting but the area had little to really offer other than the rather dirty salt flat. They did provide toilet facilities for Peso 20 which were basic

At the start of the flats there is an information place - tent & table where for $200 pesos a car the guide will get in your car and show you around the salt flats. Well worth the money as they will take you to the holes of salt in pits, the piles of salt awaiting processing and out to... More

The drive to get here from Purmamarca was an astonishing one, rising over 4100m along an, at times, rough road with packs/flocks/herds(?) of llamas on the road, and to be honest I was short of breath at times due to the altitude however the views were wonderful and well worth the journey. What was extremely disappointing was that the salt,... More

Our little rental car climbed for more than an hour to reach this amazing place. on Sunday, it was quiet and nearly deserted. Depressions dug to harvest salt were full of pure salt and evaporating water. One man was selling hand carved llamas made from blocks of the rock hard salt. It was eerily beautiful.

I'm kind of underwhelmed about the salt flats- it was OK, but I would not go to great lengths to see it. HOWEVER- the drive to get there from Purmamarca is outstanding! I was stopping every few minutes to hop out of the car and take pictures. Worth the trip just for those pictures. Lots of animals that looked like... More
