The lagoons themselves are beautiful but the access to the lagoons is very limited (for a good reason actually). After traveling for a long time and seeing many lagoons I can't say they were so different, but if you haven't seen many lagoons before it...More

Wonderful and well maintained area that allows great 'watching' without disturbing the wildlife. Yes, many tourists arrive here but this does not spoil the whole experience

Beautiful sight and very enjoyable tour passing by the Laguna de Chaza on the Reserva Nacional Los Flamencos. You could see some local birds (flamingos and taguas) and the guide gave us lots of insights and what do they eat, how do they survive in...More

This excursion - which we booked as a private tour - was probably the highlight of our stay. I would recommend a private tour as our guide left a little earlier than the crowds so we had the 2 lagunas to ourselves more or less...More

A long uphill drive from San Pedro but well worth it. Beware of the altitude and the unbelievable power of the sun. Lamas racing around the lake made the show on my visit.

Hoards of other people there but it's still a stunning place to visit. I went at sunset, which is probably the most popular time.

Cosmo Andinos took us on this trip - early arrival (first there) for flamingoes meant we saw close up - other tours arrived after and numbers of people chased them away.

Hi, Go first to Laguna Miscanti (4200m) then Tatio Geysers (4300m) the next day. If possible, I would suggest adding 1 more night in SPdA, as you plan to go to 2 locations that are very high in altitude and you really... More

They are very different experiences. Atacama is dry and arid, Lauca is wet. I found it very rewarding to visit both. As an added bonus, you will get to visit the saltpeter mines of Humberstone on the way up. We rented a car... More
