Laguna Canapa, Uyuni

4.8
#6 of 8 in Parks in Uyuni
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.

  • We stopped in this lake for lunch on the second day of the trip. The landscape is beautiful and very quiet because most jeeps don't stop at that location. yielded great shots

  • This lagoon of high altitude, and the others that follow one another along the path between Uyuni and San Pedro, is a place where you could stop for days. the views, colors, and an abundance of pink flamingos, which can be observed from a few meters, all unforgettable.

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.
