  • Not to be missed, to access only through excursions from Las Grutas. Depart in the afternoon. The images that are taken at sunset are spectacular!

  • Full of legends, of great beauty. The salt comes out. It is what is called in France "fleur du sel". There Saint Exupéry landing with his airplane of the Aéropostale and binding it to a tethering post so do not take the wind. A civilian looking for it and took him by car to San Antonio, where she loved to eat oysters

  • the excursions did it with desert track the truth a cute option to know. Instead, tell you the story of as it is formed making with salt, etc etc you get photos in this beautiful landscape. You can take in a pod salt. to the magnificent out some wonderful photos, because the Guide says as the you have to take if you're not a professional. There is a tour that includes an obvious dinner a little more face. but we did it without dinner. the Guide also tells a story or a legend that the truth you see in that huge place and gives you a little bit of fear. to provide a champáin. then cdo arrive at the starting point you will get a souvenir. a certificate as you have participated as a member of the tour. the truth is that highly recommended.
