Isla Incahuasi, Uyuni

4.6
An otherworldly island seemingly out of place in the middle of the salt flats, Isla Incahuasi represents the primary destination for most organized tours to the flats. From the hilly island, you can view the vastness of the salt flats all around you, stretching as far as you can see. Cacti cover the 24 hectare (61 acre) island, and you'll also find a tourist center catering to the many visitors who gather here every day. Make the 15-minute climb to the top of the hill for an even more awe-inspiring view of this supernatural landscape.

  • I went there as part of a tour, it's an amazing place, not to miss. Used to be an island, now smack in the middle of the salt flats. Amazing!  more »
  • By the time access is quite difficult, took much to arrive, from the town of Coqueza to the island we took 4 hours since by the water level mobility could not exceed a certain speed, I think well worth , but if they are impatient as I recommend you go at another time, like if you go with children they should be accustomed to travel or bring something to entertain them. The island was deserted, no tourists in this era, only the caretaker, clean bathrooms, well maintained trail, there is a small shop with basics, water, soft drinks and some sweets, the restaurant was not working.

  • Incredible place to visit (most good tours will stop here). However, the bs. 30 entrance fee is probably much too high for the experience. Still, we managed to get some great pictures overlooking the Salt Flats.
  • It's awesome location inside a big salt lake!
  • Cactus island. Beautiful place.
  • A magical place!
  • Unbelievable place. Full flat with salt all over. Its a different experience to be here. Great tourist attraction.

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.
