Beautiful, did not dislike anything? Just one part of the tour. Many lagunas, best one so Laguna Colorado.

“You will see on your 3-day 2-night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

The train cemetery is a fun spot for 20-30 minutes to climb the trains, go on the see-saw and swings and be a kid again!

“Very beautiful, but be careful when choosing the tour organizer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Very nice place, wonderful view! If you go on a tour starting from Uyuni, here is an advice: be very careful when picking the tour operator (ask about the number of persons in the group, the quantity of water and food, ask if vegetables and fruits are included in the meals,...) and be sure everything is written on your receipt or contract. From my experience, don't go with Thiago tour or with Cristal tour, they make groups of 7 persons (the cars are adapted for 6, the dormitories for the last night only have 6 beds!) while most other tour operators don't take more than 6 people per group. If you have time, start the tour from Tupiza, we heard that the tour organizers are more serious there!

“Was not green”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The color really depends on the wind, therefore, it was not so green when we've seen it. No flamenco are straying here due to its acidity. Moreover, its beauty is totally eclipsed by the laguna colorado ones. Not a must-do.

“Laguna verde on a 3 day tour from San Pedro de Atacama”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

You should be aware that you cannot see the Laguna verde in green colour if you dont arrive at the right time. All tour operators in San Pedro de Atacama are offering the same 3 day tour to Uyuni. On this tours you will visit the Laguna verde in the morning, when its not green coloured.
