Do you want to step out of your comfort zone and do something you'll remember forever? Then visit Salar de Uyuni. Salar de Uyuni, Altiplano, Bolivia is the world's largest salt flat at 10 582 square kilometers (4 086 sq mi/ Salt flats the size of Connecticut.). It is in the Daniel Campos Province in Potosí in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes and is at an elevation of 3 656 meters (11 995 ft) above sea level. A thin layer of water in Salar de Uyuni creates such stunning reflections that probably no words would be enough to describe this incredible beauty. There are several tour agencies that sell the same kind of tour and to different prices. So in my opinions, you should check with the others. Don't expect too much from the lodging as you are in the middle of nowhere, it is just a place to sleep with shared bathrooms, more of a dorm style. Winter can be really cold in that kind of rooms, you can rent a sleeping bag from them to keep you warm. Book directly with the company will save you some bolivianos. I book with Perla de Bolivia which I am quite satisfied with, I heard Salty tours is quite good too.
