Had everyone wrapped in layers for the trip I believed would be freezing. The heater was unbearable people were down to singlets and shirts it was quite unpleasant. Uyuni is full to overflowing with touts hoping you will choose their tour company for your visit to the salt flats. They all seem to offer something very similar and I have heard of people on the same trip who have paid quite different amounts. Never mind we had already booked tour through Kanoo to go with Tupiza. There were day tours, overnights and any other variety of trips. We ended up with a British couple - so only 6 of us plus the guide/driver who spoke no English so I was primary translator lol.
The salar itself is really incredible the other sights on the tour include beautiful lakes full of flamingos, volcanos, geysers and the desolate expanses of the Andean mountains throughout this area. Wow!
This blog is for family and friends to keep up with our travels (read as: let us brag and let dad know I'm not recklessly endangering his grandchildren) and for those researching their own trip as I know other's experiences were invaluable in my planning.
