Cuesta llegar, pero realmente vale la pena... impresionante lugar, por la altura, la enormidad de las salinas, el trabajo que se realiza ahi... no se lo pierdan! Eso si, deben acostumbrarse a la altura, porque es alto. It's an amazing place to visit, a must if you have a couple of days in Purmamarca. The trip there may be challenging,... More

It is located about 40 miles from Purmamarca and you drive through Custa de Lipán. It is more beautiful than the Salar in Atacama.

We drove from Jujuy to Purmamarca to see the coloured hills, which are remarkable, then west up towards to Chilean border to the slat flats. I have never seen anything quite so beautiful and other worldly, and the photographic opportunities are unique. Where there is a thin layer of water on the ice, the reflected pink and purple mountains take... More

Wow. I am sure the salt flats in Boliva are great too, but the Salinas Grandes is something you will never forget. The size of the salt flat is huge and with a small bit of water it looks like you are in the clouds. This is at the top of the list to see in Jujuy.

Better to rent a car and enjoy the way to salinas, which is curvy and going up the mountain, but views and great! Salinas are also cool! Great feeling of being somewhere very different.. - take a stativ if u like taking pictures, cause one can have fun with trying different funny pictures -do not forget the sunglasses - also... More

The scenery in the northwest is characterized by contrasts and these huge salt flats provide a completely unique landscape which is well worth a visit. The vastness and endless views of the flats offers fun photo opportunities, playing with the visual perspective. To get there you will drive up the Cuesta de Lipan which is a top attraction itself, with... More

We took a day-trip in our rental car from our base in Tilcara to Salinas Grandes. On the way home, we stopped in Purmamarca. Tilcara is a sweet little town with plenty of sleeping options and is central to many sights. To get to Salinas Grandes, you drive up and up into the Andes to the salt flats that are... More

Awesome view, feels like walking on another planet. I have felt the altitude sickness though, and bringing sunglasses is a must!

We took a 14hours trip here from salta, via s Antonio de los cobres. It was a long trip but definitely worth it, not just for the salinas but also for the Andean scenery we enjoyed on the way there. There is an alternative trip via purmamarca that some tour operators will propose. It is slightly cheaper and saves you... More

We decided on a day trip to Salinas Grandes during our visit to Salta and were very happy with the experience over all. If you don’t have your own transport, then you are tied to the options available through the tour agencies, so we were prepared for a longer day than we would have preferred. We talked to a few...
