Laguna Canapa, Uyuni

4.8
#6 of 8 in Parks in Uyuni
Water Body Nature / Park
Absorb the stunning vistas of Laguna Canapa, a picturesque salt lake that seems to be of the deepest blues. As home to a large population of pink flamingos, the area presents an excellent opportunity to see the elegant birds in natural habitat. Bring a camera to capture the natural beauty and remote calm, along with flamingos. Note: expect a potentially unpleasant odor from the lake due to its high sulphur content.

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.
