Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful. Blue lagoon, with white edges of ice and borax, splashed by the wind. The pink dots that were visible from afar were the famous flamingos of the altiplano. The almost vegetation-free mountains around it served as a frame for that cold oasis in the middle of the desert. It was one of the most striking images I've ever had in my life. We parked in a corner of the lagoon and when we went down we could soon see the strength and cold of the wind that blew there. We walked along the banks to the point where the flamingos were concentrated, many of them immobile, paradinhos with one leg in the shallow water of the lagoon.

    Its a beautiful rock. I have seen like this in Sahara desert. But those are of lime stone. But this is a volcanic rock with excellent silhouette. I love its feature. Its unique.

    Generally for steam train aficionados - information boards would be useful, but an unusual "resting place" for British Iron Workhorses!

    The Church of San Cristobal is a fascinating looking building. Relatively new it is still really interesting. Climb up the gates in the frontm

    Most of everything is around this area.
    The town is small.

    It was raining when you got there from La Paz by plane.
    Pretty area.

    In the center of Uyuni is the plaza surrounded by many shops where you can find many typical local clothes as well as restaurants.
    The salt sculpture, commemorating the Dakar rally, is the highlight. Otherwise it is a common pedestrian walk, although the best in Uyuni.

    It is not always open and when it is, there is no guide.
    You cannot take photos indoors.
    It is located on the route to the lagoons
