We were fortunate that we were travelling in March so not as much traffic then. The journey from Purmamarca up the very winding road was breathtaking, loved the coloured mountains and the changing landscape. The Saltpans were enormous and so vividly white. Unfortunately, we only had a short time there and mainly stopped for photos and the toilet where you had to line up and pay. We were told to be very careful with the glare and had to wear sunglasses and a hat

Although the Salinas were impressive on their own, getting there proved much more fun than anything else. The landscape changes very quickly and delivers breathtaking views under nice weather. If you appreciate walking for a while in the middle of nowhere this is highly recommended if not you can still take a few funny pictures and keep driving!

It took some time to drive to Salinas Grandes from Jujuy, but it is totally worth. The landscape, also along the road, is spectacular! Just expect to drive slowly because of traffic and also altitude. There are little villages along the road, with local food, nice options to stop. July is a busy month, just be prepared.

We chose to do this by organised tour and were pleased we did - it bucketed down rain and hail as we were leaving and on the stretch of straight road close to the Salt pans we encountered 2 local cars skidded off the road, one had rolled over. High protection sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, flipflops - walking on semi-dry salt crystals is hard on bare feet - are essential. Road up is a long series of dramatic hairpin bends and the first part of the drive has spectacular, coloured rock formations. If you think you might suffer from the high altitude (above 4000 metres) recommend coca leaves to park inside your mouth/cheeks and suck on (spit them out after a while and put in new ones) . Would have been nice to have longer at the Salinas but then we’d probably have been burnt to a crisp. Lunch stop at Purmamarca which has a very large local market, fun to browse although most stalls have similar products, plus a short, straight-up hike to the lookout point.
