Enter the Salar de Uyuni salt flats to witness this unique landscape. Head to Flags Square, where you will find many flags from countries all over the world. Here you’ll see the Dakar Monument, as well as the first hotel made entirely out of salt, where you will enjoy lunch.

Next, spend some time taking perspective-defying photos. Continue on to Incahuasi Island, an island of giant cacti with thousands of years of life. Hike 20 minutes to the top, where there is a spectacular panoramic view of the salt flats.
