A small deception of our 3 days tour. Indeed, there wasn't wind at the time we visited, meaning all the sediments where at the bottom of the water, which therefore wasn't green... but the place is nice and you get a nice view on the...More

First world problem I know as they are all really quite spectacular but I did prefer the red lake (Colorado) to this one. The red one is more remote and less commercial .... and more vibrant in its colouring! You can swim here in the...More

The Laguna Verde is part of the Reserva Nacoinal de Fauna Andina Eduardo Avaroa. Excursions to/from Uyuni - San Pedre de Atacama stop at this lake with flamingos.

We visited Bolivia with our two children - aged 9 & 10. The altitude is quite high reaching 4970m above sea level throughout the day. Kids were fine. The lakes are amazing and worth the trip from Atacama.

Laguna Verde is located behind Licancabur Volcano. If you're in San Pedro de Atacama you'll have to cross Bolivia border, so take your passport and if you're driving a rented car, you'll need a special authorization from the rental agency. The Bolivian migration office closes...More
