  • It is a cute four hour excursion making sunset. I went with the Triton company, take you in combi, show you the salt Museum, where there are bathrooms, then the process of obtaining salt and observed the sunset toasting with champagne. Highly skilled and fun guides. They draw you pictures using the technique of forced perspective. It is an interesting excursion and you learn something new and the landscape is very cute.

  • the appeal is to go see a space for several km. having a salt flat, there is nothing more to do. To highlight, it is very nice to see it on full moon evenings, from the road that goes to the Valley the famous bad light can be seen.

  • We went with a company that made the trip with toast. Without dinner. Guides tell you the history of the place, ves as the process and there are some employees working on the Saltworks, is also a photographer, if you want also teaches you tricks to get some good funny pictures - you see the sunset and take the return.
