Laguna Canapa, Uyuni
(4.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Laguna Canapa and discover more family-friendly attractions in Uyuni using our Uyuni itinerary maker.
