Uyuni

3.9
Emptiness surrounds the desert outpost of Uyuni, the gateway to the world's largest salt flats. Life can be challenging in the arid town of around 10,000 people, formed as a trading post in 1890 and located 3,700 m (12,139 ft) above sea level. The difficulty of getting fresh water to the area has made agriculture almost impossible, but a boom in Uyuni tourism has kept the town going--and growing.

Where to stay in Uyuni

Accommodations seem to occupy nearly every other building in Uyuni. Where you stay is of little importance, as the town can be traversed on foot in a matter of minutes. You won't find large luxury hotels here, but you can choose between a range of comfortable inns and guesthouses. Reserve your room in advance, as competition for good rooms can be stiff during high season.
