Isla Incahuasi, Uyuni
(4.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Isla Incahuasi into our Uyuni itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Uyuni.

  • In spite of the Salar de Uyuni tours stop shortly on this island and your entry not be very cheap Bolivian standards, well worth exploring. Due to the altitude, it's pretty tiring climb up their tracks of loose rocks to the top, but the view from the top makes up for everything and is a great place for photos. It's a unique feeling when one realizes the real dimension of what is an sea has dried and left that white expanse around the island. Who decides not to pay to climb the island is forbidden to use the bathrooms.
