  • In vicinity of Las Grutas is this salt, on the other side of the path. A large and striking landscape white in the middle of the plateau

  • N place itself is very nice, a sea of salt in the middle of nowhere is incredible. We went at sunset with the company triton who were by other professionals. We did the tour with dinner and it was perfect. Super fun guides and no one spared expenses. Only boys were ours and however passed it very well. The view of the stars is priceless. Super recommended. I recommend the excursion complete with dinner.
