  • Ojos del Salar is a tour done in conjunction with the Cejar Lagoon. Are actually two holes in the middle of the desert. In my opinion the only thing that saved the tour were the photos were amazing and spectacular sunsets.

  • We were in a tour, many offer it on the main street of San Pedro, if you like to swim is a good choice and separately disposed of a few good Pikemen in the middle of the desert, then you walk by the salar de Atacama to finish watching a beautiful sunset with pisco sour and snack (this depends on the tour you choose but most offer it). I quite recommend it is output.
