I had a fantastic time in the Salar. The place is extraordinary and beyond anything I imagine even from the photos I saw before getting there. Every day the landscape is different and unique. Such a range of natural occurrences in such vastness it makes it a spiritual experience as well as a visual one.
Our guide Alfredo was brilliant. I felt well throughout the trip but was very sluggish with the altitude and the jet-lag and I was very grateful our guide took such good care of us and of all our needs, everything run easily and smoothly. He also spoke very good English and translated for me if I had difficulty with the Spanish explanation. A wonderful experience.
