We made the best tour of our entire life while leaving San Pedro de Atacama to Salt Flats in Bolivia on a Jeep 4WD with more 3 people. Our driver was very careful and helpful with all the things, always explaining about the places we passed through.

The accommodation was very good, it had double and triple rooms, very organized and cozy, and even with this infrastructure, it is necessary to use sleeping bags because the night is very cold.

In the accommodations we had all meals included, such as the breakfast, lunch and dinner. Always well served.

The way to the Uyuni Salt Flats is wonderful, many people think of the salt desert is the ride apex, but they are wrong! Every lagoons that we passed during the way it’s wonderful, hard don’t take a 100 photos on each stop.

The highest point of the ride is 5.000 meters above the sea level, that is why was recommended do a acclimatization before in San Pedro de Atacama.

We met a lot of lagunas such as Laguna Branca, Laguna Verde, Laguna Colorada, Laguna Honda, Laguna Chiarkota, Laguna Hedionda and Laguna Cañapa. The most impressive in my opinion is the Laguna Colorada, its reddish! It’s incredible and also is a house of more than 30,000 pink Flamingos. You're going to be speechless.

We pass through the Arbol de Piedra which are rock formations due to the wind.

On the last day we went to see the sunrise at Salar de Uyuni, it was very cold, around -5 degrees Celsius, however all this is rewarded when you see the Salar, it's amazing!. We also visited the Isla Incahuasi in the middle of the salt desert, with thousand-year-old cactus.

The last stop of our tour was on the train cemetery, very interesting to learn more about the history of Bolivia and the mining production during the XX century.

In the afternoon of the 3rd day we arrived to Uyuni, a bit tired but looking forward on our next adventures in the beautiful travel destination of Bolivia.
