Isla Incahuasi, Uyuni

4.5
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.

    Beautiful island in the middle of the world's largest salt flat. Visit mandatory if you are going to Uyuni. It costs a little walk but it is more than valid.

    Very nice surprise in the salar, but entry on this volcanic town is paying off! Beautiful cactus.

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.
